Essential oils are a large part of the aromatherapy market. Natural cosmetics and treatments are becoming more and more appreciated and the global market recognizes the potential and gives more space and significance to this area of worldwide business. Last year we wrote about some of the most important essential oil fairs and events. There are lots of educational and quality events that will be organized this year as well.
Important essential oil events for 2020
1. BIOFACH-VIVANESS 2020
Nuremberg, Germany from February 12- 15, 2020. The World’s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food & VIVANESS 2020
The International Trade Fair for Natural and Organic Personal Care!
This is one of the most influential organic product fairs for years. Each year they surprise the visitors and exhibitors with organization and quality and we can’t wait for next year’s BIOFACH, because this is the perfect place to educate, promote and update about the latest organic personal care trends.
2. In-Cosmetics Global 2020
Worldwide personal care ingredients community wouldn’t be the same without this major event. The most successful suppliers and vendors on the market have a great opportunity to expand their business during this global event.
Unfortunately, this year’s in-cosmetics Global had to be postponed because of the current Covid 19 pandemic. Here are the most important event updates:
”Reed Exhibitions announces that in-cosmetics Global 2020 has been postponed until 30th June. Updated on 5th March after many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19, we have decided to postpone in-cosmetics Global 2020 due to take place at Fira Barcelona Gran Via from 31 March – 2 April to the new dates of 30 June – 2 July 2020. This decision has been difficult because of the major importance of the event to the personal care industry.
We heard from many of you about your concerns and the travel restrictions that have been put in place in some countries and decided that postponement is the best course of action to still deliver a high-quality business event.in-cosmetics Global will not undergo substantial changes and will take place in the same Hall with the same floorplan. The content program that has been communicated over the past months will still stand with minimal changes. We’re excited that we can deliver in-cosmetics Global 2020 and celebrate the 30th anniversary (albeit a bit later than planned!), and we look forward to welcoming you to the show. We really value the support of everyone involved in the event.” (in-cosmetics Global)
3. The IFA Clinical Aromatherapy Research Symposium and Trade Show
June 6, 2020, The Avenue, Richmond, TW9 2AJ, United Kingdom
This is another big aromatherapy event. This year’s conference theme will be ‘Clinical Aromatherapy Research Symposium’. Ancient history has provided anecdotal evidence of the therapeutic use of essential oils. Scientific research in recent years confirmed earlier theses and expanded the area of research. Clinical trials, clinical audits, case histories, and patient-reported outcome data also support aromatherapy benefits and effects. All of these researches and evidence created a base of loyal customers and aromatherapy supporters worldwide. Mental health, cancer care, and back pain are the areas this year’s convention will give the most space.
