Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, which will celebrate its 52nd edition, has confirmed its role as the most important rendezvous for the cosmetic industry. Cosmoprof is a reference event for the international beauty community: for the 250,000 professionals, opinion leaders and experts from all over the world (last year 122,500 of them came from abroad), wishing to analyse case histories, trends and news of the sector in the wonderful scenario offered by the city of Bologna; for exhibitors, who can improve their business (in 2018, 2,822 companies took part in the show, representing 70 countries); for buyers who can discover the latest market trends; for top managers who can meet leading companies and close new relationships; for the more than 1 300 international journalists who come to Bologna to have a preview of the latest technologies, digital tools, multi-cultural and sustainable trends.
Sustainability and circular economy will be the main themes of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2019. Attention to the environmental impact of the cosmetic industry is linked to a revolution of the system, which imposes new values such as the use of renewable energy sources, limited waste of product, the recycling and the reuse of the materials used and of the produced waste elements.
The trade show dedicated to contract manufacturing and private label, machinery, primary and secondary packaging, applicators, ingredients and raw materials keeps growing. Together with the traditional halls 20, 15, 15A and 18, for 2019 part of the hall 19 will host manufacturing technologies.
The growth of the exhibition area of Cosmopack in Bologna reflects the international development of the supply chain. Cosmopack is the privileged mediator for professionals and managers of the supply chain, from raw materials to machinery and packaging, in the search of new solutions for the cosmetic industry. Marketing teams, product development departments and R&D gather inspiration from the new collections, presented as an exclusive preview in Bologna by leading contract manufacturers attending Cosmopack. Packaging and applicators suppliers complete the offer, with more attention paid on packaging design and sustainability.
Cosmopack presents the latest news in processing, packaging and labelling. Focus of the next edition, innovation and digital tools which experts of the sector already define “Industry 5.0”: thanks to the interaction between human intelligence and new technologies, the production process will reach new levels, reducing time and imperfections.
As proof of the attention the market continues to address to sustainability, Cosmoprof and Cosmopack present Pure Factory & Sustainable Experience, a project that involves all players in the beauty industry, from ingredients to formulation, from machinery to packaging and design. Thanks to PURE, the next generation scalp cleaning balm/oil, the attention of the global industry is focused on sustainability.
