Some Facts about Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2023
The 54th edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, saw MORE THAN 250,000 ATTENDEES FROM 153 COUNTRIES AND 2,984 EXHIBITORS FROM 64 COUNTRIES
Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere, said “The presence of key players from the main markets, of more than 2,984 exhibitors (+11% compared to 2022), from 64 countries and of 29 country pavilions is the result of the efforts to strengthen the international profile and prestige of the event, thanks to the collaboration with Cosmetica Italia – Personal Care Association and the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ITA – Italian Trade Agency. The institutional presences of these days, with the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, the Italian Minister of University and Research Anna Maria Bernini, the Italian Minister of Tourism Daniela Santanché, and with the local, national and international authorities, highlight the value of Cosmoprof both as business partner for operators, and as an economic pillar.”
“The total turnover of the cosmetics sector in Italy is fully returning to pre-pandemic levels (13.3 billion euros in 2022), exceeding the values of 2019 by 10.5% and estimates by further growth (+7.7% compared to 2022) for 2023, – commented Benedetto Lavino, President of Cosmetica Italia.
The significant representation of the political world and institutions is the evidence of the strong attention, also by the Government, to the value of cosmetics as an indispensable good for hygiene, prevention and protection and of the ever-increasing awareness of the power of the national cosmetic sector as a driver of Made in Italy in the world. The confirmation comes from the ferment on international markets, where the Italian offer is increasingly appreciated for its high standards of quality, safety and innovation, with growing interest from non-European destinations, and a trade balance that will reach record levels in 2022 exceeding 3.2 billion euros and a growth of over 500 million compared to 2021. Data and dynamics which, once again, alongside the historic partner BolognaFiere Cosmoprof have allowed us to consolidate the story of cosmetics: an industry that is good for the country”.
Matteo Zoppas, President of ITA – Italian Trade Agency, commented – “It was a synergistic team effort, aimed at affirming the image of Italy, home of the culture of beauty and theatre of an industrial system of absolute excellence. For us Cosmoprof is not a point of arrival but a starting point: throughout 2023 ITA will continue its initiatives to facilitate further commercial hubs for Italian exports in France, Spain, the United Kingdom and Morocco. In total, there will be 12 initiatives organized by ITA around the world. We are convinced that exports are vital for Italy. More exporting companies means more growth and development for the country. As ITA we are ready, alongside companies and at the service of the “Italian System” and of our nation’s foreign economic and trade policy”.
