“Cosmoprof 2018 registered astonishing results – says Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere – the number of professionals attending the exhibition exceeded the 250,000 visitors of the 2017 edition; we recorded a growth by 11% in the presence of foreign operators. Record numbers also for exhibitors, 2,822, from 70 countries; they attracted an international audience, eager to do business and looking at the same time for professional updating. The B2B vocation of Cosmoprof has been further consolidated, thanks to the strong relationship established between buyers and exhibitors, to the articulated professional updating program, to the 18 workshops which saw a large participation and brought on the stage opinion leaders of great prestige, to the Awards celebrating the most innovative companies and the Career Award to Jean Claude Ellena, the famous “nose” of the Maison Hermes that attracted new attention to high-end perfumery, to which this year a special section was dedicated. A lively event – continues Calzolari – full of proposals, from the industrial supply chain to retail, a real glance on the world of cosmetics, in a synthesis that no other fair in the world can guarantee.

Cosmopack presents Pennellifaro

INTERVIEW WITH SARA ZANAFREDI, CEO OF PENNELLIFARO Sara Zanafredi, you are CEO of Pennelli Faro, an Italian company manufacturing cosmetic brushes. Is Made in Italy today still something worth being emphasized? I believe that today Italy is still a global landmark in terms of originality, real innovation, style and care for the details. The export sales figures clearly confirm that. It is a talent that can neither be copied nor improvised.We try to express all of this into our products, because that is what makes a difference on the market. There is another fundamental advantage in producing in Italy: proximity. We are close to the district of Crema, which hosts the biggest producers of cosmetic products with whom we cooperate in order to create the very best tools for the application of the most advanced textures. Proximity among all the company’s working teams also enables a very fast information and feedback flow. All of this leads us to a specific test&learn attitude with immediate results. Within Cosmotalk you are a guest of the conference debating the time-to-market and the agile development topics.  What is the market truly looking for? The speed of information flow on Internet and particularly on social networks, causes …
