We hosted our very first indie beauty tradeshow: Meet-Your-Match!
As Europe's first and only wholesale marketplace that spotlights independent beauty, grooming and lifestyle brands, we thought we'd bring our platform to life with our first ever virtual tradeshow, Meet-Your-Match.
Our four day event was filled with Curated Talks from some of our incredible brands from our most popular Curated Collections (Female Founders, Vegan, Sexual Wellness and Self-Care & Love, to name a few), opportunities for our brands and attendees to connect in 1-2-1's, and daily Headline Talks from some of the industry's best, covering everything from retail trends and beauty insights, to conversations around sustainability in beauty.
