In this digital event, Arthur Zaczkiewicz, executive editor of WWD, is joined by Sonia Summers, chief executive officer and founder of Beauty Barrage, to discuss rapidly-evolving trends and current opportunities in the beauty industry. They will discuss why, as retail stores reopen, brands need to make sure field teams and virtual teams are completely aligned; and why there is a lot that brands can do to succeed in the fourth quarter to take advantage of pent-up demand in consumer spending.
The lively discussion will also include how physical retail has changed in a post-COVID-19 environment, and how Beauty Barrage is uniquely equipped to help brands and retailers create a safe and optimal shopping experience for consumers.
