Reed Exhibitions announced today that in-cosmetics Global will be rescheduled to October, after announcing in March that the show would be postponed to the end of June.
Following the steep escalation of COVID-19 across Europe, and in particular Spain, in-cosmetics Global will now take place from 6 to 8 October 2020 at Fira Barcelona, Spain.
An evolving situation
Speaking about the announcement, Cathy Laporte, portfolio director at Reed Exhibitions, said: “The situation surrounding COVID-19 is constantly changing. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority and we will remain guided by the expert advice of the public health authorities.”
Laporte said Reed Exhibitions understands that the global pandemic is having planning and financial implications for the industry. “We have therefore taken this decision proactively well in advance of the current June dates to allow exhibitors and visitors more time to prepare and gain maximum value for the event when it happens.”
An innovative and caring industry
She added: “It has been a difficult few months globally, but it has been inspiring to see the resilience of the industry, and how companies have been adapting to the situation, in some cases repurposing their factories to support public health authorities with the production of much-needed healthcare products.”
As event organisers, Reed Exhibitions is proud to serve such an innovative and caring industry. “We can’t wait to get the global personal care and beauty community together once again, in Barcelona, in October. We want everyone to enjoy attending in-cosmetics Global as they have done so in the past,” La Porte commented.
