What People Are Saying

  • I've been to many conferences; but, this was my first time attending the WWD CEO Beauty Summit. I came away extremely impressed by the quality of the presentations and the diversity of companies represented. While it's a big commitment to participate, the ROI in terms of ideas, trend insights and networking made it well worth while.

    - Hatch Beauty

  • I loved attending the WWD Beauty CEO Summit and was honored to share my story with the incredible group of attendees. The location at the Breakers in Palm Beach was beautiful and I appreciated each of the sessions, lunches, and dinners, which were planned and executed perfectly. I found inspiration from the speakers and enjoyed being around so many of the industry leaders who I look up to. I learned so many things that I wouldn’t have had the time to during my busy day-to-day schedule—I will definitely attend again next year.
