Global governments across are doing their best to curtail the spread of Covid-19. Many exhibitions, shows are being postponed to later dates to support this.
Messe Frankfurt Middle East has announced new dates for Beautyworld Middle East 2020. The 25th edition will now take place from 23 – 25 November 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The new show dates come after extensive feedback and consultation with the venue, exhibitors, visitors, trade partners and associations, as global governments continue to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Beautyworld Middle East 2020 was initially postponed to run in August, however the potential of the ongoing international travel restrictions, along with uncertainty around the virus’ trajectory meant the summer month was too soon for the show to take place. The vast majority of stakeholders supported the November dates.
The priority is to the health and safety of all exhibitors and visitors as the global beauty industry continues to navigate these challenging times. They are working hard to provide our valued customers with the essential tools, knowledge, and business connections in November, and are committed to hosting another standout show.
