The Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna show has opened today in Italy. The supply chain and retail areas of Cosmopack and Cosmo Perfumery & Cosmetics will be open from today until Saturday, March 18, in a bid to concentrate attendance of operators from abroad on week days. The Cosmo Hair, Nail and Beauty Salon part of the show will run from March 17-20.
