Reed Exhibitions has announced that In-Cosmetics Global in Barcelona and In-Cosmetics Asia in Bangkok will not take place this year “due to the ongoing travel restrictions due to the [COVID-19] pandemic”. They will instead revert to their usual slots next year, with the former taking place on 5-7 April 2022 in Paris, and the latter on 1-3 November 2022 , still in Bangkok.
“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,” said Roziani Zulkifli, exhibition director of In-Cosmetics Global.
“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.”
The decision about In-Cosmetics Asia was similarly prompted by widespread travel bans and further tightening of government movement measures across Asia and increasing numbers of COVID cases in and around Bangkok. These regions are now in the dark red zone of maximum restrictions.
Meanwhile, In-Cosmetics Latin America in São Paulo, Brazil, has been rescheduled from 22-23 September to 10-11 November 2021. Exhibition director Daniel Zanetti said that this was being done in order to give the country’s vaccination programme a further seven weeks to boost immunity”.
