THE WHAT? BolognaFiere Group and Informa Markets have announced that Cosmoprof Asia 2022 is to be relocated from Hong Kong to Singapore and will now be held from November 16-18, 2022 at Singapore Expo as a special edition.
THE DETAILS A virtual event, Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week will be held from June 27 to July 5, 2022 in advance of the in-person meet.
“The APAC region remains a crucial reference for global economics, and Cosmoprof Asia is continuing its growth in the area,” said Antonio Bruzzone, General Manager of BolognaFiere Group and Director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd. “In 2022, Singapore is the best location to welcome stakeholders and professionals again, offering a not-to-be-missed experience to do business in person”.
THE WHY? The decision was made after ‘extensive discussions with business leaders, exhibitors and partners’, BolognaFiere said, as a result of the current entry restrictions for travelers to Hong Kong, as inbound travel is likely to be subject to quarantine restrictions.
David Bondi, Senior Vice President – Asia of Informa Markets and Director of Cosmoprof Asia, explains, “This special edition of Cosmoprof Asia in Singapore will figure as the most important gathering of international beauty stakeholders, supplier and buyers since our last edition in 2019. Our proactive decision to relocate the fair from Hong Kong to Singapore shows our determination to help the industry to reconnect in 2022. We are confident in Singapore’s strong reputation as a preferred destination for business events, and look forward to welcoming our delegates from around the world in the Lion City this November.”
