Initially scheduled for June 1 and 2, 2021, EDITION SPECIALE by LUXE PACK, the trade show dedicated to sustainable premium packaging, has been postponed from August 31 to September 1, 2021, at the Carreau du Temple in Paris. “This calendar repositioning follows the latest governmental announcements making it unlikely to organize an event of this type in early June. This postponement to early September allows us to project ourselves into a more serene context in view of the second half of the year. Our objective remains the same: to mobilize an entire ecosystem of actors committed to more environmentally friendly packaging. This, within the strictest sanitary rules of course,” explains Fabienne Germond, Director of Luxe Pack.
The 53rd edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna has been postponed to September. The event was rescheduled from 9 to 13 September 2021, due to the continuing health emergency linked to the spread of covid19.
“The concerns related to the unpredictable trend of infections expressed by our exhibitors, trade associations, and institutions once again force us to delay Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna,” says Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere. “The current conditions make it still too complicated to organize an international event such as Cosmoprof within the first half of the year. Our goal is to be able to restart in September with a performing and functional exhibition, which we want to create with the contribution of all the key players in the sector.”
Reed Exhibitions announces that in-cosmetics Global 2021 is postponed to 5-7 October in Barcelona. The event was scheduled to take place in April.
“This early announcement will hopefully allow time for the impact of COVID-19 across the world to stabilise and when safe to do so, ensure that the event can continue its critical role in bringing the global industry together again. After consulting with exhibitors and key stake-holders, we recognise that in order to hold an international event there needs to be more time to allow for the reopening of borders and lifting of travel restrictions. Large-scale events are subject to ever-changing national and local guidelines and regulations. Our priority is to deliver an engaging and COVID-secure face-to-face event with combined virtual solutions in October, which gives exhibitors and visitors the additional time to adapt and continue on the path to recovery,” explains Reed.
Despite all the means implemented to support the industry and organize a show that meets current challenges, the latest government measures to reduce the number of people gathered together and travel restrictions have forced the organizers to cancel the LUXE PACK Monaco 2020 show.
“As international health measures become more stringent by the day, it is now impossible for us to guarantee a show that meets the high standards that LUXE PACK Monaco has been offering for 34 years,” said Nathalie Curvat, Managing Director of IDICE, the company that organizes LUXE PACK shows around the world.
However, in order to support the profession, the My Luxe Pack platform will open in November. Accessible to all, it will allow to discover all the exhibitors’ know-how, their best-sellers, and their latest innovations for a sourcing of the most creative packaging solutions.

Co-financed by the French government and the Centre-Val de Loire region as part of the Investment for the Future program, the Beauty Hub is the first French gas pedal dedicated to innovation in perfumery and cosmetics.
It is housed in premises made available by Chartres Métropole on the site of the future Maison Internationale de la Cosmétique.
“Since the end of the confinement, we have been working to relaunch the industry. The Beauty Hub is the vanguard of what will be presented on October 15 during our Estates General. This initiative is a remarkable illustration of our ability to act collectively. In particular, I would like to salute the companies that have mobilized to enable this project to see the light of day. As competitors, they are here as partners. I would like to thank the State and the local authorities that have given their support to this bold initiative. Above all, I would like to welcome the first start-ups that are being welcomed here today. They are, for France, the leader in our market, the promise of the future,” said Marc-Antoine Jamet, President of Cosmetic Valley.
