A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
In a post-COVID, health conscious world, wellness has become an inescapable buzzword, used to market everything from cars to cat food. As the concept itself becomes commoditized, those in the business of self-care — health, beauty, fitness, nutrition — are becoming increasingly differentiated in their approach. At the 2023 WWD Beauty & Wellness Forum, we’ll explore the themes, trends and big ideas that are driving the sector forward. How are advances in genetic and diagnostic testing accelerating the development of hyper-personalized products? What does the future of women’s heath look like and how are the worlds of products and providers merging to create new models? How can wellbeing move from the province of the well-to-do and encompass true inclusivity in its approach? What’s next in the super-hot services sector?
The speakers at this this year’s conference, to be held September 26 in New York City, will analyze these topics and many more. Thus far, confirmed participants include companies both established and emerging that are paving the way, including Beekman 1802, Genexa, Care/Of, Brown Girl Jane, Movita, Ahara, Othership, Mad Rabbit, Deon Libra, Ever Body, Wthn and more. In the days to come, we’ll be announcing more speakers and activations. The day promises to be full of insights and actionable information, and on behalf of the entire WWD and Beauty Inc team, we look forward to seeing you there.
