COSMOPACK FROM BOLOGNA TO NEW YORK WITH THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS FORUM & EXHIBITION
COSMOPACK, the trade fair dedicated to the beauty supply chain held during Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna (the leading international beauty event organised every year by BolognaFiere), is landing in New York for the third time, in partnership with Cosmetica Italia – the personal care association. The event is organized in cooperation with Polo Tecnologico della Cosmesi and with the contribution of ICE- Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Ministry of Economic Development – MISE.
On May 11th and 12th, at the Spring Studios in Manhattan, Cosmopack will organize a B2B workshop intended to develop the networking between US companies and the excellence of the Made in Italy for what concerns solutions for the beauty industry, from Packaging to Make up.
Top US Buyers and trade press will take part to the event, having the opportunity to analyze the US market and the best performing business strategies.
The International Business Forum & Exhibition in New York will focus on the relationship between Italian firms and American buyers (selected among the most important purchase managers of the most prestigious beauty companies and retail groups), and particularly on the best tools and the specific needs to enter the US market.
Decision makers and managers participating to the event will attend meetings and round tables, sharing their know-how and their opinions. This year the event will launch “I am a beauty GURU”: world known visionaries, thought leaders, icons and game-changers of the beauty world will discuss about the future of the beauty industry to anticipate changes, stay ahead of the market and grow.
“Thanks to Cosmetica Italia and Polo Tecnologico della Cosmesi – says Dino Tavazzi, Chief Executive Officer of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof – and after the 2014 and 2015 editions in New York, we have the chance to reward once again the beauty supply chain, as part of the events organized by Cosmoprof in Europe, Asia and the United States, more specifically in Bologna, Las Vegas and Hong Kong. Cosmopack – International Business Forum & Exhibition in New York is a not-to-be-missed appointment for companies specialized in raw materials, machinery, counter manufacturing and packaging. They will take advantage from a rich calendar of one-to-one meetings, workshops and job sessions, granting both professional upgrade and the development of new contacts and business relationships”.
“Foreign markets are the most important business for Italian counter manufacturers, which have a high reputation among international professionals and distributors – says Matteo Locatelli, president of Gruppo Produzione Conto Terzi (Counter Manufacturers Group) of Cosmetica Italia – The International Business Forum & Exhibition in New York has confirmed its role as a special stage to draw the attention of the US market on the excellence of the Italian manufacturers, which is characterized by a perfect mix of technology, innovation, creativity, quality and product safety. Confirming this trend, for the first semester of 2015 the United States have been the third destination country for Italian beauty export, with a growing percentage of 21% and a total value of more than 140 million euros. Each year Italian export grows up to 10,5% worldwide, for a total value of 3,600 million euros”.
“Our partnership with Cosmopack – International Business Forum & Exhibition has been confirmed in 2016 with the aim of supporting this important event – says Matteo Moretti, President of Polo Tecnologico della Cosmesi – but at the same time it aims at promoting all the exhibitions of the international platform of Cosmoprof Worldwide. For New York we will grant a more and more significant presence of the companies which are part of our association, because we know from the past editions the high value of this appointment to understand how to perform in the US market”.
“We are honored to grant our contribution to Cosmopack – International Business Forum & Exhibition – says Maurizio Forte, Trade Commissioner & Executive Director of ICE for the USA – We believe that it is important to support this initiative, because it gives visibility to the Italian beauty supply chain, which is recognized worldwide for the quality and for the high standard of its production as an excellence of the Made in Italy. This event is a great opportunity for Italian companies to enter the US market and to establish new relationships with the most important retailer of the East Coast, relaunching their production and their business.”
