Included in the program are sessions which focus on business and future perspectives, retail and consumption trends, emerging markets and developments within the personal care products sector, nanotechnology, sustainability, and EU regulation and legislation.
The keynote speaker, Robert Ward, director, global forecasting, from the Economist Intelligence Unit will address "The Outlook for the Global Economy." The main focus of Ward's presentation will be on global economic perspectives, including China, and new opportunities for businesses in the current economic environment.
The 2011 conference is designed to bring together key players within the personal care products industry, providing an environment for delegates to attend sessions with renowned business consultants and authoritative industry speakers, and to also engage their business partners in the many formal and informal networking opportunities offered throughout the event.
"Due to the huge success of Outlook 2010, and upon request and positive feedback from last year's speakers and delegates, we have decided to return to Budapest, Hungary. This city is a potential gateway to the growing eastern markets, and a cost-effective and central location for delegates, which was deemed as a critical element to attract the industry's key representatives," EDANA says.
