Brand New. New Brand.

Brand creation and brand renewal are the heart and soul of every business ��� especially the beauty business. What are the secrets of a successful launch? How can a brand be refreshed so that it gains new followers without losing its base? Are there new markets for mature brands?

This one-day forum for top-level retailers and brand executives dives deep to answer these questions and more while also providing an opportunity to participate in targeted networking.
