Another new section this year will be the “Made in Vietnam” pavilion, which will turn the spotlight on Vietnamese brands.
The buyer profile will expand from mainly distributors and retailers to a wider range including salon owners, OEM and contract manufacturers and brands.
The event will also feature a series of networking events and workshops focusing on case studies on how to build brands and sales channels effectively through social media, affiliate marketing, influencers, and video marketing.
The third Vietnam Beauty Distributor and Retailer Club annual workshop will be held to give insights on omnichannel retail strategies.
