Discovering What The Future Folds For Beauty… We are excited to announce the program for the 2018 INNOCOS Summit. This year’s program will provide invaluable insights on the beauty industry’s hottest emerging trends and how they are reshaping the future of beauty as we know it. Areas of focus will include marketing and operational best practices, success stories, innovation strategies, and advice on how brands and retailers should respond to the ever-changing modern customer. Trends are coming and going at a much faster rate then ever before, and INNOCOS’ 2018 agenda will take a closer look at these trends to better understand the drivers behind them and anticipate potential future outcomes. We cannot predict the future of the world, but we can certainly try to understand the forces that shape it by observing the fast-moving elements that fuel it.
