The 53rd Edition Of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna’s team touched down in the vibrant Italian city of Bologna in late April for a truly unforgettable experience at Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.

Here’s What You Missed 

Visitors from more than 140 countries attended the event to discover the industry’s latest innovations, thanks to the investments of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Italian Trade Agency (ITA) as part of projects for the promotion of the Italian beauty industry in the main markets worldwide. 


“We waited a long time for this 53rd edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna. To finally find ourselves in the halls of the Bologna exhibition center was undoubtedly an important moment for our sector, which highlighted the desire to restart: A relaunch that rests on solid foundations,” said Renato Ancorotti, President of Cosmetica Italia.

“By 2021, the Italian cosmetics sector has shown its ability to react and by 2022, despite the uncertainties of the international scenario, it is estimated to return to pre-crisis levels with the turnover that will return to exceed 12 billion euros,” added Renato. “The historic synergy with our partner BolognaFiere Cosmoprof has allowed us to give voice to the excellence of the Italian cosmetic industry, a real flagship of Made in Italy and a strategic sector for the country system.”
