Event description
Is your brand ready for Gen Z?

About this Event

How do Gen Z discover, learn about and shop the health and beauty category?

In 2019, Gen Z surpassed Millennials as the largest generation, accounting for 33% of the UK population and spending £7billion annually. Just as we saw the rise of social networks, smartphones, online shopping and influencers with Millennials, knowing what drives Gen Z will be vital for your brand.

The Pull Agency conducted research to better understand how Gen Z discover, learn about and shop the health and beauty category.

This event will combine the findings of our Future of Beauty research and street interviews, take an exciting look at how emerging technologies are shaping the beauty industry with Data Scientist Eric Topham and finish with a lively panel discussion featuring guests from Schwarzkopf Professional, Marks & Spencer Beauty, Microsoft and skincare start-up Vice Reversa.

“Technology will only fuel our desire to be beautiful”

Future Of Beauty – The Findings

The event will begin with the unveiling of our research into the Future of Beauty. Led by Pull’s Head of Brand Strategy, Claire Rance, and Head of Digital Marketing Virginia Girtz, we’ll make sense of what this all means for your business and the future of the industry, as well as getting under the skin of Gen Z to understand what makes them tick.
