The leading global event and online resource for personal care ingredients

in-cosmetics Global postponed until 5-7 October 2021

Reed Exhibitions Ltd, the organiser of the leading global event for the personal care industry, announces the new dates for the 2021 event and in-cosmetics Global will now take place in Fira Barcelona, on the 5-7 October 2021, moving from the original April dates. 

After consulting with exhibitors and key stake-holders, we recognise that in order to hold an international event there needs to be more time to allow for the reopening of borders and lifting of travel restrictions. It is clear that the industry needs to meet in person later in 2021.  Large-scale events are subject to ever-changing national and local guidelines and regulations. Our priority is to deliver an engaging and COVID-secure face-to-face event with combined virtual solutions in October as we are able, one that gives our exhibitors and visitors the additional time to adapt and continue on the path to recovery.

Our current priority is on keeping the industry connected during this time, fostering collaboration, promoting new innovative solutions and helping to nurture critical business contacts, so watch this space for a virtual experience coming next April.

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our exhibitors, visitors and partners for their support. We believe this extra time ahead of the 2021 event will offer exhibitors reassurance and more opportunity to prepare their fantastic showcases for our visitors to continue in their personal care creations.”
