What is the Innovation Forum?

The Innovation Forum is a peer-to-peer networking event which aims to promote discussion and debate in the Australian aesthetics industry.  In a sector which is both exciting and rapidly changing the objective of the forum is to create dialogue around current trends, with a particular focus on innovation.  The objective is to look at what is happening in the market now, and more importantly what is on the horizon for tomorrow?

How does the event work?

The Innovation Forum is a breakfast event which is hosted in a round-table format with a number of presenters highlighting new innovations across different product categories.  The forum also includes a general briefing on current industry trends from Professional Beauty magazine Managing Editor, Sarah Bowing.
