Beauty Tech Live, the first event bringing together the worlds of beauty (all channels) and tech, is attracting strong interest, with many executives from the industry’s major brands and tech companies registering to attend, along with a strong line-up of retailers.

Attendance is complimentary for all players across these vast and burgeoning sectors.

Beauty Tech Live, organised by leading international beauty title BW Confidential in collaboration with Moodie Davitt Virtual Expo Company, will take place from April 12-16.

The Beauty Tech enivronment has been curated by Singapore, London and Hong Kong agency FILTR to relect the progressive, hi-tech nature of the sector

The event is built around three key areas: The Exhibition Hub, which will showcase the latest tech innovations for beauty; The Knowledge Hub, which will host presentations, panel discussions, talks and case studies from beauty and tech thought leaders; and the Experience Hub, which will show beauty tech in motion with a range of live demos and workshops.

Executives from major groups such as L’Oréal, P&G, Shiseido, Estée Lauder Companies, Coty, Puig and Unilever, as well as players from the distribution community, such as Sephora and AS Watson Group have already signed up to attend this pioneering event.

Executives have expressed interest in discovering new tech solutions and trends at the event. Visitors will be able to exchange with others in the beauty tech community and take part in the conference and panel discussions that promise to offer key insights into areas such as digital transformation, how the COVID-19 acceleration of tech will impact the beauty market, e-commerce strategies and connecting with today’s digital-native consumers.
