Seven Québec companies took part from March 8 to 11, in Bologna, Italy, in Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, the leading beauty sector, cosmetics and wellness industry trade fair.

Québec has participated in the trade fair for several years. The event is a chance for it to promote its cosmetics industry, which generates over $500 million in revenue and accounts for close to 50% of Canada’s production in this niche sector.

Excellent visibility

The Québec booth, housed in the international pavilion, gave the participating companies high visibility and a chance to share a common space for welcoming potential partners and customers. Year after year, participation in Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna boosts Québec businesses’ profiles on the Italian and global markets.

A number of specialty sectors were represented, including makeup, aromatherapy, hair products and beauty equipment.

The following Québec companies displayed their products in Bologna:

  • Belvada Cosmetics
  • Dectro International
  • Fiji Blend
  • Hubmar
  • Delon Laboratories
  • Oligo Professionnel
  • Ora Vie

Québec’s participation in Cosmoprof Bologna Worldwide 2013 was made possible by close collaboration between Export Québec and the Québec trade branch in Milan. Leading this type of initiative is part of Export Québec’s internationalization-assistance mission, which involves providing small and medium-sized enterprises with support in preparing, deploying and following up their participation in trade fairs.

This year’s Cosmoprof participants have already expressed their interest in returning to Bologna for the 2014 edition of the event.
