+ What are these “specialized industry conferences” that BeautyEdge reviews and how do they benefit my company?
The conferences BeautyEdge attends are the selective, more niche conferences that are held in the U.S. throughout the year. Think "indie" conferences. The attended conferences range from Medi-spa and Spa services, Dermatology and Plastic Surgery to cosmetic Color application. We provide a paid subscription e-review called OnTheEdge which is e-mailed to you 5 times per year with bonus materials. The benefit to your company of subscribing to OnTheEdge is to capture current trends and trends in their infancy without utilizing your own precious time and expense to attend these conferences. You can apply the information gained from the e-reviews to your day to day business by editing your current line-up of product launches, better meet consumer use demands and have a first hand look on what's coming down the pike based on the presentations, products, technologies and trends we see.
+ Can BeautyEdge provide a customized review for depth and focus with a specific goal geared toward my company’s needs?
We can certainly provide a more in-depth summary of the conferences, interpret the trends we see and provide an abstract and presentation for your company. Contact Cherie@beautyedgeinc.com for details
+ My company is a raw material vendor. How can I benefit from BeautyEdge’s services?
Having worked on the client side of the industry, we know how to present raw materials to Marketing Product Development teams. We can take your featured materials and create concepts for you to present to your clients. It saves time for you and saves time for your clients. Your clients are more apt to understand the technology better presented in a full concept rather than a technology presented with scientific verbiage and lots of clinical charts. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an example.
