This isn't just a conference:

it's a collective movement to redefine the future of beauty.

Join us for a two-day summit gathering our industry’s most inspiring trailblazers and innovators to discuss the next frontier of inclusivity and diversity in beauty.

Uniting brands, retailers, and industry thought leaders, we will address the urgent need for inclusivity across workplace culture, product development, and marketing strategies.

“As founders and leaders, we have influence. How do we use that privilege to ensure every beauty consumer feels empowered to live loudly and proudly in their skin?”

Powered by Landing International

By leveraging the power of technology to level the beauty retail playing field, Landing has made it possible for small beauty brands to compete with the multinational corporations that have historically dominated the industry and upheld narrow and exclusive definitions of beauty.

In 2022, Landing launched BeautyFluent, a first-of-its-kind education app that makes it easier for gender-inclusive, female-owned, and minority-owned beauty brands to connect directly with the beauty advisors who interact with their customers every day at retailers.
