9:00 AM OPENING KEYNOTE

Instead of pining for an eventual return to “the way things used to be,” we must adapt our lives (and our businesses) to a new world and a new reality. In many cases, the circumstances of the pandemic accelerated many already developing trends; in others, they caused consumers to pause, reset and shift priorities. Either way, beauty, influence and consumption habits are being recalibrated in real time by the intersection of two things: 1) Advancing technology and 2) What we forecast to be the emerging 21st Century version of “The Roaring 20s.” In this talk, futurist Jared Weiner inspires new thinking and offers insights on how to better capitalize on emerging opportunities.  

9:30 AM: KEYNOTE
2020 was a year of total transformation for consumers. We have seen that the pandemic has fundamentally changed how people interact with beauty brands. What trends are here to stay, and how should brands adjust to the "post-pandemic" consumer?
