MILAN — The 47th edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna trade show is around the corner, and the fair will have an even more international edge, as well as a renewed focus on eco-friendly cosmetics and a more tangible connection to Italy’s art and fashion worlds, according to show organizers.
At a press conference here on Wednesday, Duccio Campagnoli, president of Bologna Fiere and SoGeCos, said 2,450 exhibitors would be present at this year’s edition of Cosmoprof — 65 percent of them from outside Italy — an increase of approximately 2.5 percent over 2013. Twenty-five country pavilions will be on-site, with newcomers Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Peru and Bulgaria on the roster.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
