2019: THE FUTURE OF BEAUTY FROM EVERY ANGLE
WE DRIVE, WE INSPIRE, WE CONNECT THE ENTIRE BEAUTY INDUSTRY



CosmoTalks returns for its third year at 2019 edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.

When we launched it in 2017, we redefined the ways in which exhibitors and visitors interact with the beauty ecosystem. We set forth to introduce an educational format for creativity, inspiration and business. Along the way, we have been fortunate enough to engage with and learn from some of the most accomplished mavericks of beauty, media, design, tech, trends and beauty brands.

Together with CosmoTalks at Cosmoprof Asia and Cosmoprof India, it is the world's busiest conference program in the beauty universe.

Our educational format will bring together from Thursday, March 14 to Saturday, March 16 even more top global beauty doyens to explore the newest trends, beauty innovations and technologies for all beauty sectors.
