Health, well-being, and an attractive body are highly valued by consumers. The global market for cosmetic products is expected to reach a market value of over USD 800 billion by 2023. Generation Z is born into a world of fitness, organic nutrition, and social media driving the image of beauty; their aim is to stay fit for the continuous job and partner market.
At the same time, that consumer wants a balanced life. This is demonstrated by high expenditure on beauty products, wellness cults, and healthier food. Tracking technologies and smart mirrors help consumers stay on their personal course. What appears today to be high-tech will soon be considered the standard.
Consumers expect every product and service to help them improve their well-being. This spurs competition beyond traditional categories such as health, beauty and food. Soon, every retailer or service provider will be judged by their contribution to individual well-being, which will be considered more comprehensively; in the future, it will be measured in a personalised way, in everyday life, using increased technology.
At the conference, cross-industry, international speakers will present theses you can use to align your product, marketing and sales concepts.
This conference is aimed at company developers, strategists and decision-makers from the fields of product development, product management, marketing and sales.
- What do consumers value when buying health, wellness and beauty products and how do they behave?
- What will the product presentation of the future look like?
- What role will virtual beauty offers play?
- Which wellness criteria can be used to measure retail in the future?
