  • in-cosmetics Global, Latin America and North America 2020 postponed. in-cosmetics Asia 2020 going ahead

    Updated 1st July

    Over the last few months, we have been closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and evaluating each in-cosmetics event individually, based on their specific circumstances. Having considered all options, and in an effort to give the personal care community we serve as much notice as possible, we have reached the following decisions:

    in-cosmetics Global and Latin America postponed, in-cosmetics North America cancelled

    Over 80% of in-cosmetics Global attendees are international from countries at different stages of the global pandemic and with varying government advice and travel restrictions. We have therefore decided to postpone in-cosmetics Global 2020 to 13-15 April 2021. To ensure minimum logistical impact for all participants, we will hold the event in Barcelona (same hall/venue), and not in Milan, as originally scheduled for 2021.

    With COVID-19 pandemic worsening across the Americas, we do not consider it safe at this stage to organise a face-to-face exhibition. We are therefore postponing in-cosmetics Latin America to 22-23 September 2021(same hall/venue) and cancelling our North American event for 2020.

    in-cosmetics Asia 2020 going ahead

    With the improving COVID-19 situation in Asia, business recovery in the region and the ongoing discussions to re-open borders for business travel, as it stands we do not plan to postpone or cancel the event in Asia. in-cosmetics Asia will therefore take place on the original dates of 3-5 November at BITEC Bangkok, Thailand. We will implement health and safety measures recommended by WHO and local authorities with your well-being remaining at the heart of our decision-making. Our team will continue to explore various models to facilitate face-to-face meetings and reach out to the wider audience digitally.

    in-cosmetics Virtual launching soon...

    We appreciate how important it is for the industry to stay connected during this time. Following the launch of in-cosmetics Connect earlier this month, in-cosmetics Virtual will take place in October 2020. The focus will be on helping worldwide suppliers connect with personal care creators from Europe and the Americas.

    Reed Exhibitions announces that in-cosmetics Global 2020 has been postponed until 6-8 October 2020

    Updated 8th April

    Following the steep escalation of COVID-19 across Europe, and in particular Spain, in-cosmetics Global will now take place from 6-8 October 2020 at Fira Barcelona, Spain.

    The situation surrounding COVID-19 is constantly changing. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority and we will remain guided by the expert advice of the public health authorities. We understand that the global pandemic is having planning and financial implications for the industry. We have therefore proactively taken this decision well in advance of the current June dates to allow exhibitors and visitors more time to prepare and gain maximum value for the event when it happens.

    It has been a difficult few months globally, but it has been inspiring to see the resilience of the industry, and how companies have been adapting to the situation, in some cases repurposing their factories to support public health authorities with the production of much needed healthcare products. As event organisers, we are proud to serve such an innovative and caring industry, and we can’t wait to get the global personal care and beauty community together once again in Barcelona in October. We want everyone to enjoy attending in-cosmetics Global as they have done so in the past.

    in-cosmetics Global will not undergo substantial changes and will take place in the same Hall. The content programme that has been communicated over the past months will still stand with minimal changes.

    Reed Exhibitions announces that in-cosmetics Global 2020 has been postponed until 30th June.

    Updated 5th March

    After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19 we have decided to postpone in-cosmetics Global 2020 due to take place at Fira Barcelona Gran Via from 31 March – 2 April to the new dates of 30 June – 2 July 2020.

    This decision has been difficult because of the major importance of the event to the personal care industry. We heard from many of you about your concerns and the travel restrictions that have been put in place in some countries and decided that postponement is the best course of action to still deliver a high-quality business event.

    in-cosmetics Global will not undergo substantial changes and will take place in the same Hall with the same floorplan. The content programme that has been communicated over the past months will still stand with minimal changes.

    We’re excited that we can deliver in-cosmetics Global 2020 and celebrate the 30th anniversary (albeit a bit later than planned!), and we look forward to welcoming you to the show.

    We really value the support of everyone involved in the event.
