New consumers, focused on self-expression, authenticity and social consciousness are redefining what it means to be beautiful. Meanwhile, rising trends in product development, marketing, technology and retail are providing new avenues to reach them.

Join us as we present the most pertinent market insight and research in the sector, along with strategic foresight on how to apply it.

‘Honesty will be an important differentiation point for beauty brands this year. Just as consumers demand to know more about the provenance of their food, so too they are demanding more knowledge not only of the ingredients in their beauty products but of their pricing structure as well.’

Martin Raymond, co-founder, The Future Laboratory

As well as delivering key consumer and industry insights, attendees get direct access to our research and strategy teams, who will be on hand to answer questions on how best to apply and tailor these insights to your specific business needs. There will also be ample opportunity to network with your peers, industry influencers and the keynote speakers.
