Ongoing safety concerns due to COVID-19 means the expo will not be returning in 2020, but organisers are refocusing for 2021.
Beauty Expo has been cancelled for 2020. The expo was initially set to take place at the ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour in late August but was postponed to October due to gathering restrictions. Reed Exhibitions has now decided to withdraw the event from the calendar based on State and Federal Government directives and the ongoing threat of COVID-19.
Event organisers were optimistic they could safely deliver the event in October, but after talks with stakeholders and customers, they have chosen to direct their focus to Beauty Expo 2021.
“We appreciate that this is disappointing news, however we have made this decision with everyone’s health and safety as our number one priority. We can now look ahead positively to the 2021 edition of Beauty Expo Australia,” Reed Exhibitions said in an official email.
The next edition of Beauty Expo Australia is scheduled to take place at the ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour on 28 -29 August 2021. This news comes after several other beauty and hair expos have been cancelled due to COVID-19, with no indication of their return. Beauty Expo Australia has expressed their ongoing concern for everyone impacted by the global pandemic.
