Welcome to the personalised beauty global series

We are back for our 4th iteration of the series - this time we’re GLOBAL, we’re DIGITAL, and we’re delving into next generation technology in consumer health & beauty.

2020 has accelerated digital transformation in the beauty industry making personalisation a necessity for gaining market-dominance and lasting customer-loyalty. 77% of consumers will choose, recommend, and pay more for a brand that provides a personalised product or experience (source: Forbes).

With marketers, product developers, innovators and e-commerce leaders seeking the best personalisation solution for their customer, the race is on.

Tune in to our industry leading series - delve into new developments that have re-shaped the industry, and innovations that expand further afield including innovations in AI, AR, 3D Printing, Formulation, Smart Devices and even DNA Analysis.
