#QuantumBeauty—being everywhere at once

Omnipresent, being everywhere at once – what does it mean for beauty brands? Is this how brands are sold, how brands communicate, or both? Are sales and communication now one and the same? How can we emerge from the advent of social commerce platforms, strong affiliate marketers and the new super-savvy consumers, with margins intact and volumes growing?

How do we engage and embrace our target market when it is everywhere yet nowhere for very long? Can we do this within existing communications structures and budgets? The rules are quickly breaking down. Being everywhere at once is one thing, making sure the communication and engagement is as seamless and as omnipresent as your product is another.

The Red Tree Consultancy and My Market Insight are delighted to announce an eclectic mix of influential speakers for the fifth Beauty Symposium. Our panel will aim to address “Quantum Beauty—being everywhere at once” and provide inspiration to help you make the most of running a successful omnipresent business.

The line-up of presenters are all highly experienced in their fields—branding, retailing, journalism, social media and digital strategy.

The Beauty Symposium is pleased to support “Look Good Feel Better” and donates all event net proceeds to this very worthwhile charity.
