in-cosmetics Global Awards 2022 online

Our awards ceremony will look a little different this year. Tune in, wherever you are, to virtual presentations with exhibitors receiving their trophies on stand. We’ll be sharing the winner announcements on all our social channels as well as on the virtual platform. Unfortunately, due to the necessary restrictions in place, we won’t be hosting an in-person party, but we’re so excited to open it up and share the thrill of the awards with a wider audience online.
