INCLUSIVE BEAUTY

The Leading Beauty Industry Event to Make Inclusivity a Reality

Book your pass
VIRTUAL SUMMIT | PDT Timezone
8-9 December, 2020

“The beauty industry is one of the first frontiers where the battle for improved inclusivity is being fought with Millennial and Gen-Z consumers quickly distancing themselves from un-inclusive brands. We’ve reached an inflection point and beauty brands understand that if they don’t make serious change they’ll be left behind and be missing out on the $1.2tn of Black spending power ”

Neilsen, 2018

Why Attend

The Inclusive Beauty Summit, December 8th - 9th, a virtual forum for thought leaders from across the beauty industry to connect and identify how to overcome the challenges of hiring, marketing, formulation, product development and retail to appeal to a more diverse consumer. 

Tune into the summit to understand how you can leverage this emerging market opportunity and; 

  • Increase your market share through product innovation
  • Revolutionize your ingredients through formulations 
  • Be front of mind with innovative marketing campaigns  

Key areas being explored at the summit include;

Hiring & HR: Change starts from the top. Assess and implement the internal protocols that Ulta, Kendo (Fenty) and Urban Skin RX have put in place to make inclusivity part of their ‘DNA’.

Marketing & Branding: Inclusivity is more than just including black models in your marketing campaign. Dive deeper into how Shiseido, P&G and Luna Magic develop authentic brands that consumers trust and apply their know-how to your own strategy. 

Product Development & Clean-Ingredient Selection: Fenty changed the game with their 40 shades – now everyone’s doing it. So, what’s next? Curology, Versed, Nutralicious, Croda and Kate Somerville tell you exactly where they’re looking to diversify their product category offerings and how your brand can keep formulations ‘clean’. 

The Voice of the Indie Brands: It’s the indies that are breaking the mould, carving their own niche and catering to underserved consumer groups. Undefined Beauty, Kreyol Essence and Shedavi share the secrets to their success and outline the industry support needed to allow more Black-owned brands to flourish. 

Retail: Consumers need to feel welcome and catered for in-store, regardless of their age, gender, sexuality or race. Ulta, Sephora and Credo will provide updates on the staff education, technology and product diversity initiatives they’re putting in place and discuss the future of inclusivity in beauty retail.

Pitching Session

We know how important the connections with retailers and investors are for propelling your brand forward in the beauty space, and we also know there hasn’t traditionally been a platform for increasing diversity in the brands that are seen and heard.

That's exactly why we've gathered the 'who's who' in beauty retail and investment for private, 1-2-1 sessions that can give you the opportunity to grow your business and find your next partner.

You can apply to meet with any of these partners. They will be selecting meetings with those brands they feel most align with what they are looking for. Limited spaces will be available with each company.

The Inclusive Beauty team will then schedule these meetings through our meeting platform, in the allocated 'Pitching Time' of Day 2 (9th December, 10am-1pm PST).

To apply, you must be registered by the 30th November 4pm PDT. Details of application will be sent to you on registration – it is a 5 minute, simple survey application process.

See you there!

Kisaco Research provides the much-needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
