Consumer Discovery Show
If you're unfamiliar with the Consumer Discovery Show, we highly recommend getting familiar. It's a huge event organized by FounderMade to bring together the best in business. Retailers, distributors, investors, and influencers come together to see innovative brands and products. It's buzzy, it's exciting, and it's totally worth attending—especially if you love beauty products as much as we do.
You see, some seriously amazing companies come together to unveil new products, plan for future launches, and discuss all things hair, makeup, and skincare. It's coming to New York City soon (as in next-week soon), so this one goes out to all you East Coast girls. Attend this show to discover the best and brightest in beauty.
The Discovery Show, an invite-only curation of 150 different brands ranging across all industries (beauty included), will exhibit innovative products, and as a heads-up, the founders and top-level executives of these brands are required to attend, so it will definitely be informative.
There will also be educational panels, where founders and executives come together to talk about all aspects of business, including topics like leadership and networking. In fact, Byrdie's own editorial director, Faith Xue, will be moderating one of these panels that will also host Sarah Michelle Gellar, actress and co-founder of Foodstirs; Alli Webb, the founder of Drybar (aka the woman who brought us some of our favorite styling products, like the Buttercup Blow Dryer, $195); and Kurt Seidensticker, founder and CEO of Vital Proteins.
