Trade show organizer Reed Exhibitions has cancelled the in-cosmetics Global event for the personal care ingredients industry, which was due to take place this year from October 5-7 in Barcelona, Spain, as a result of pandemic-related travel restrictions.
The next in-cosmetics Global event will take place from April 5-7, 2022, in Paris, France.
The company also announced that in-cosmetics Asia will not take place this year. The event has been moved to November 1-3, 2022, and will take place in Bangkok, Thailand.
In addition, Reed has postponed in-cosmetics Latin America, which was scheduled to take place in São Paulo, Brazil from September 22-23, 2021. It will now take place from November 10-11.
“Despite live events now taking place, we have to consider the international nature of in-cosmetics Global. We have seen positive signs over the last few months with successes in the vaccination programme rollout, but new variants have created increased uncertainties and steady progress is not the case everywhere. We have been in continuous contact with both exhibitors and visitors, and it is clear the level of confidence to travel and attend large-scale international B2B exhibitions in the cosmetics industry is not there yet,” commented Roziani Zulkifli, Exhibition Director of in-cosmetics Global.
