Why Attend

The No.1 Meeting Place For Beauty Business Partnering

In a world where businesses like Kylie Cosmetics can go from zero to $420 million in sales in just 18 months, and M&A activity continues to thrive, there is plenty of opportunity for new entrants from both Beauty and from Money to take advantage of the booming industry.

The Beauty & Money Summit is THE destination for the hottest M&A-ready independent beauty brands to connect with Strategic and Financial Buyers looking to build even more enterprise value with their next acquisition or investment.

We are so proud watching our previous Beauty Spotlight Finalists grow from strength to strength. They continue to be part of our community, offering their advice to the new generation of independent beauty brands.

Three of our finalists from the inaugral Beauty Spotlight at the 2017 New York Summit, have since gone on to receive significant investment!

Beauty Bakerie has since raised capital from Unilever Ventures, whilst Scentbird has achieved a Series A funding round of $18.6m and Pulp Riot has been acquired by L’Oréal.

Join 250+ of the most innovative beauty companies, strategic buyers and investors looking for the next big opportunity and you will:

  • Discover the latest key trends and hot topics transforming the beauty industry.
  • Uncover key areas of growth and innovation in skincare, colour cosmetics, haircare, fragrance and beauty technology.
  • Recognise the future of beauty and hear from 12 independent beauty brands, handpicked by the prestigious selection committee, showcasing their products and innovations.
  • Share experiences and network with leading brands, investors and industry supporting companies and beauty influencers shaping the industry.

Become a Sponsor

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and services, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with the conference will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. Build meaningful connections, showcase your brand and stay ahead of the competition.

Past sponsors include:

  • Raw materials, reagents, cell, antibodies providers
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Process standardisation technology/services
  • Logistics companies
  • Contract research organisations
  • Contract manufacturing organisations

Here's some of the great companies who have come along to the previous Beauty summits we've held.
