The advance of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, made Reed Exhibitions decide to postpone the 2020 edition of in-cosmetics Latin America. The event is now scheduled for September 22 and 23, of 2021, at the same venue – Expo Center Norte, in São Paulo.
The decision, made in an atypical and still unpredictable scenario, seeks to safeguard the health and integrity of visitors, exhibitors and partners, and also to respond to the economic impacts of the pandemic, which affects all sectors of the economy.
in-cosmetics Global changed and city and date
Reed Exhibitions decided to postpone in-cosmetics Global and North America. Over 80% of in-cosmetics Global’s visitors are international, coming from countries that are at different stages of the pandemic, each with different recommendations and different travel restrictions. Thus, in-cosmetics Global 2020 was postponed to April 13 to 15, 2021. To minimize the logistical impacts for all participants, the event will be held in Barcelona, and no longer in Milan, as originally scheduled for 2021.
in-cosmetics North America canceled
With the Americas region being last impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and countries like the United States have not yet reached their peak, the events organizer considered it not feasible to organize exhibitions focusing on face-to-face meetings. Thus the 2020 edition of in-cosmetics North America 2020 was also canceled.
However, in-cosmetics Virtual will arrive soon. Reed Exhibitions is working to bring content and business through digital platforms to in-cosmetics Latin America exhibitors and visitors, such as the recent launch of in-cosmetics Connect and, soon, in-cosmetics Virtual, to be held daily October 20th.
The focus of this virtual platform will be to help partner supplier companies around the world to connect with Personal Care developers from the Americas and Europe. The event will promote highly targeted business opportunities to facilitate lead generation through pre-scheduled meetings, Speed Networking sessions and new product presentations.
in-cosmetics Asia 2020 confirmed
With the improvement of the situation of COVID-19 in Asia and considering the resumption of business in the region and ongoing discussions for the reopening of borders for business trips, Reed Exhibitions will keep the event on the original days – November 3 to 5, at BITEC Bangkok, Thailand. In the meantime, all health and safety measures recommended by WHO (World Health Organization) and local authorities will be taken. The team of employees continues to explore models to facilitate face-to-face meetings and still reach an audience in the region, in a digit way.
