Cosmoprof India, the event organized by BolognaFiere and Informa Markets and dedicated to the beauty and cosmetics market, will be held on 16 – 17 December 2021, at the Hotel Sahara Star in Mumbai. The exhibition will welcome the key players of the cosmetic industry in India. The government recently announced the gradual reopening of national borders to travelers from abroad — this decision will allow buyers, distributors, and R&D managers to visit the show, discovering the impact of the pandemic on the local market.
“We are monitoring the evolution of Covid-19 in India and the re-opening of the economy, in order to organize an event which will follow all local safety regulations. The exhibition will be the first occasion for brands, buyers, retailers, and wholesalers in the beauty and cosmetics industry to meet again after a long time of travel restrictions and social distancing, and to discover how the domestic industry is reacting to new digital tools, revised distribution channels, and new consumers habits”, said Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere.
Yogesh Mudras, managing director, Informa Markets in India said, “While the Covid-19 situation had presented a constantly challenging environment for exhibitions organizers and the beauty and cosmetic industry across the globe, the green offshoots of resurgence and re-start is being optimistically yet cautiously being witnessed in India. Scheduling Cosmoprof India at the Hotel Sahara Star in Mumbai in December will allow enough time for normality and confidence to return to the marketplace. It will enable us to offer efficient, impressive, and state-of-the-art solutions for our stakeholder’s evolving requirements.
“The increased penetration of vaccines has led to a reduction of travel restrictions, providing better and safe conditions for exhibitors and visitors to participate. We look forward to offering an outstanding business experience that our stakeholders have always expected from the much reputed and celebrated Cosmoprof India.”
Demographic growth, ever-improving living conditions, and the development of the manufacturing and digital sectors have given a boost to the Indian economy over the last few years. While the outbreak of Covid-19 and its consequences deeply impacted the nation, the revenue growth in the beauty sector in 2022 is anticipated to increase by +2.8%. Considering the current circumstances and the opportunities for a turnaround, Cosmoprof India will keep a steady eye on the evolution of the local market, presenting international stakeholders with innovative Indian trends and proposals.
