How would you describe the upcoming London Beautycon event for anyone who may not be familiar with it?
Beautycon Festivals represent high-energy IRL experiences, around the world, for creators, traditional celebrities, brands and fans, to come together around common interests – beauty, fashion, style, and staying true to yourself.
From London and New York to Los Angeles, filled with engaging panel discussions, meet-ups, selfies and brand activations, Beautycon Festivals have seen more than 60,000 fans attend worldwide and our day-of event #hashtags often trend globally on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. Your favorite brands and creators like NYX, QVC, Maybelline New York, Nike, Bethany Mota, SunKiss Alba, and Zendaya have all been part of our past Festivals.
Beautycon events have been taking place all over the world so far – do the events have a different theme or vibe from country to country?
The vibe and theme are similar across all cities and countries. Here is a link to a sizzle video if we have the ability to post it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w9vv7euuotvqsuo/TKT-LND-S1-0008-02.mp4?dl=0
