The safe return of in-person events: in-cosmetics Global is back and COVID-secure

Leading cosmetics and personal care event, in-cosmetics Global, returns to Barcelona this October to deliver safe networking and sourcing opportunities

After last year’s postponement of in-cosmetics Global due to the coronavirus pandemic, the world’s leading personal care ingredients show is set to make a highly anticipated return with its first in-person event in over 18 months. Taking place between 5-7 October in Barcelona, the industry will be reunited with a much-needed opportunity to connect face-to-face and source the latest innovations.

The careful easing of lockdown restrictions and resumption of live events means the heath and safety of visitors, exhibitors and staff continue to be the top priority. in-cosmetics Global aims to provide a safe experience for everyone involved whilst preserving the essence of the renowned event. In order to do this, it is adopting a robust ‘Health & Safety 5-point Strategy’ and is working closely with local authorities and the Fira Barcelona venue to implement all necessary precautions.

A key change made by in-cosmetics Global to ensure the delivery of a COVID-19 secure event includes the introduction of a one-way system to help maintain a minimum 1.5 metre social distancing. in-cosmetics has worked closely with Fira Barcelona to devise a robust safety strategy that follows regulations set out by the Spanish government. There will also be the highest standards of cleaning before, during and after the event, readily available hand sanitisers throughout the venue as well as increased ventilation to improve fresh air circulation.

As COVID-19 safety and security requires participation from everyone, all those attending the event will be expected to follow a number of hygiene measures such as:

  • wearing face coverings
  • maintaining physical distancing
  • refraining from shaking hands

However, digital handshakes will be possible as for the past two editions, in-cosmetics Global has been a smart event that allows visitors and suppliers to exchange information virtually. Exhibitors will also be reviewing the design of their stands to assist with these measures and will be required to clearly display the maximum capacity to prevent overcrowding. Interactive feature areas like the Make-Up Bar, Sensory Bar and Sustainability Corner will remain an integral part of the show, with appropriate adjustments made to manage social distancing and the safe sampling of products.

Event Director of in-cosmetics Global, Roziani Zulkifli, commented: “The pandemic has halted in-person activity resulting in a string of event cancellations and postponements in all industries across the globe. Whilst we’re proud of our transition to virtual events and networking, we’re extremely excited to see the return of in-cosmetics Global in a COVID-19 secure format. The absence of physical events has only strengthened our belief in the need for face-to-face networking and collaboration throughout the cosmetics industry.”

The next edition of in-cosmetics Global is due to take place from 5-7 October 2021 in Barcelona, Spain. For more information on the health & safety measures, please visit our website
