During times of immense change, the beauty industry has continuously demonstrated its relevance and resilience, responding with agility to an ever-evolving landscape. Today, innovation drives success, core values are key and consumers are savvier than ever before. But while momentum remains strong, there’s uncertainty, too, with seismic cultural, political and economic shifts happening around the world that are already impacting business.
The 2022 WWD Beauty CEO Summit, titled Beauty Unfiltered: A Candid Look at the Future, will bring together the leading retailers, marketers and creative minds across all categories to better prepare for the next phase of global beauty. From understanding today’s highly connected consumers to dissecting fast-changing global dynamics, diving into top-of-mind issues around sustainability, inclusivity and transparency to tackling supply chain concerns, our speakers will address the key areas needed to drive growth today.
