As the world slowly begins to emerge from the Covid crisis, and economies start to reopen, we have a clearer understanding of how lockdowns profoundly impact on the way people live, work and relate to each other.
All areas of life have been affected, from how we shop to how we entertain ourselves. With the continued economic uncertainty, and with our accelerated dependence on technology and digital media, we are seeing seismic shifts in consumer behaviour and will continue to do so – in some cases, for years to come.
At the Innocos Life After Covid; The New Normal conference, you can join beauty innovators, tech leaders, disruptors and inspirational speakers to gain insights into the emerging trends in technology, consumer behaviour, retail and product innovation that are set to reshape the beauty industry.

YOU WILL HEAR in person how to keep ahead of the curve, and be at the forefront of innovation and macro trends, with a mix of talks, panel discussions, case studies and workshops, covering five key topic areas: Technology Innovation, Retail Disruption, Consumer Dynamics, Marketing Trends and Product Innovation.

We’ll be following a series of guidelines and protocols to ensure that we’re able to bring together our community of media and marketing leaders safely. While they will vary slightly from event to event, here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Rapid testing will be required for all participants daily, or only once at the entrance if you have a proof of vaccination.
  • Masks will be required indoors. All attendees will be required to wear masks indoors.
  • We’ll hold as many functions outdoors as possible. While it will vary slightly depending on the venue, look for outdoor panels, meals, working groups and networking experiences.
  • There will be a cap on the number of registrants. Each INNOCOS event will be limited to a safe number of attendees that will vary depending on the venue.
