The 53rd edition of the most important international trade show for the beauty industry, Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, Italy, is scheduled to be held from 18–22 March, 2021. It has created quite a lot of excitement, in view that the 2020 edition was cancelled due to CoVid-19. In preparation, the top Italian beauty product companies that will participate are listed in a digital directory with information about all the participating companies is being launched as a precursor to the main event. The directory, called ‘Beauty Made in Italy’, has details of 800 Italian companies, 1500 Italian brands and more than 3500 beauty products across all the main cosmetic sectors: perfumery and cosmetics; beauty salon and spa; hair, nail and accessories; natural and organic; and aesthetic medicine.
The CoViD pandemic has changed the way business is being done all over the world. In the post CoViD world, the emphasis will be more on partnerships through virtual channels. The traditional notion of brick and mortar entities where goods are typically sold across the counter and partnerships fostered through physical meetings, will undergo a radical change.
At a time like this, the ‘Beauty Made in Italy’ digital directory could be of help to the Indian cosmetic industry. This free digital tool will help Indian companies discover the latest trends and products in the beauty industry, and form partnerships with their Italian counterparts. It offers a wide range of business opportunities with Italian companies who are eager to expand their horizons and engage with new partners across cultures and across the seas.
“Italian companies want very much to engage with young, upwardly mobile Indians whose aspiration to reach new heights is very impressive,” said Fabrizio Giustarini, Trade Commissioner, Mumbai Office. “We hope that this digital directory will be the first step in that direction.”
