“The Virtual Travel Retail Expo is an inspiring initiative, which is embracing the power of digitalisation to meet the evolving needs of our global industry,” says Shiseido Travel Retail President & CEO Philippe Lesné.
Japanese premium beauty group Shiseido has signed as a Platinum Partner for the inaugural Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo
The Expo – which takes the form of a ‘live’ 5-day event followed by a 30-day showcase – begins on 12 October, just after the conclusion of the Chinese Golden Week holidays. It features a star-studded series of events across the five days, including a Symposium, category workshops and a new consumer research initiative.
Shiseido Travel Retail President & CEO Philippe Lesné commented: “The Virtual Travel Retail Expo is an inspiring initiative, which is embracing the power of digitalisation to meet the evolving needs of our global industry.
“Shiseido Travel Retail is energised by the opportunity to take a leading role in this new virtual community as a Platinum exhibitor, and we look forward to further enhancing our strong digital credentials in our mission of beauty innovation for a better world.”
The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie said: “Under the global stewardship of President & CEO Masahiko Uotani and the travel retail leadership of Philippe Lesné, Shiseido has become synonymous with innovation and digitalisation. In 2016, Uotani-san created the Shiseido+ Digital Academy as part of his Vision 2020 corporate strategy to make Shiseido the most digitally advanced company in beauty.
“Since that creation, the travel retail channel has witnessed some outstanding activations and innovations, culminating in the breathtaking Shiseido Forest Valley in collaboration with Jewel Changi Airport. We are honoured to welcome such a thought leader to our inaugural Virtual Expo.”
