To make the return of the trade show happen, the Cosmoprof Asia team chose to relocate the event from its home base of Hong Kong to Asia neighbour Singapore. A highly accessible venue for international exhibitors and buyers, Singapore welcomes fully vaccinated visitors without pre-departure tests, on-arrival tests or quarantine requirements. As one of the world’s most connected countries, Singapore can be reached through Changi Airport, which serves more than 85 international airlines flying to about 100 cities across 46 countries and regions globally. Visitor registration is now open at www.cosmoprof-asia.com.
“Cosmoprof and Cosmopack Asia are proud to return to the physical event format, offering world-wide exhibitors and consumers a safe venue in which to meet and greet suppliers, experience products in-person, and learn about the region’s most compelling trends,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President – Informa Markets Asia and Director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd.
