Global Cosmetics Community

A new online community for professionals in the cosmetics and personal care industry has just launched!

29 FEBRUARY 2012
Summary
The newly launched Global Cosmetics Community will create business opportunities by connecting buyers, suppliers, retailers and distributors as well as enhance careers through the jobs listing. The community site has been designed to be a place that you would want to spend time, share views, discuss business issues and industry news. The community also allows you to create your own groups as well as pages to promote your company and personal blog.
With the increasing popularity of online networking KGS Global has developed the Global Cosmetics Community www.globalcosmeticscommunity.com which allows members to collaborate with others, join discussions, ask questions and stay up-to-date on the latest news whilst enhancing your innovation and marketing first hand from experts.

This new online community was initiated by participants of the InnoCos conference in Paris last June. “Attendees wanted us to create a community where participants could stay in touch before and after the event. A place to facilitate ‘virtual’ networking, providing valuable real-time information you won’t find anywhere else.” States Lisanne Vos, Chief Creative Officer at KGS Global, creator of the Global Cosmetics Community, and event organizers of the InnoCos events.

Vos continues “Not only can innovation and marketing executives connect with their peers online through the Global Cosmetics Community but they can meet face-to-face and discuss business issues ‘offline’ at our InnoCos events. This really does add an extra dimension to their experience.”

The community site has been designed to be a place that you would want to spend time, share views, discuss business issues and industry news. The site features broadcasting tools and the ability to create your own personal profile and page to encourage interaction and networking whilst building a true sense of community. Existing social media channels are used to drive more traffic and support the community.

Members can take part in discussions and polls on such topics as social media marketing, weekly inspiration, trends, regulations and safety, formulations, science and new product development amongst others. There is also a rewards programme where members can collect points for being active online members, participating in offline events and inviting colleagues to join. Points can be redeemed by receiving discounts for the annual InnoCos conferences as well as partners product offerings.

The Global Cosmetics Community also provides a platform where you can download free presentations (videos and PowerPoint presentations) from the InnoCos annual events along with smaller local events throughout the year, providing valuable content to members.

The online community will create business opportunities by connecting buyers and suppliers as well as enhance careers through the jobs listing. The community also allows you to create your own groups as well as pages to promote your company and personal blog.

About innocosconf

At KGS we not only organise senior level business conferences and tailor-made corporate events but we create communities around specific industry and business topics.

KGS is global organisation with one clear goal – deliver the best quality network for senior executives in Cosmetics Industry as well as cross – industry Social Media Marketing, B2B Marketing and Enterprise 2.0 as well as provide interactive, insightful information and analysis about issues facing business around the world. Our conferences are developed through thorough research and a deep understanding of the critical concerns facing professionals, and experts and leaders who have deep knowledge and practical experiences in their respective areas address them.

We believe that conferences are not just about thought provoking presentations, workshops and inspiring speakers but they are about people, social interactions and sharing knowledge.

In our connected world information is available 24/7 at your fingertips so providing first-rate programme content is essential, however we strive to create a stimulating environment where you can share your experiences face-to-face with your peers and build relationships.

We feel that relationships should extend beyond the event. It happens all too often that you meet inspiring people, network with your peers and promise to stay in touch only the reality is that you leave the event, loose contact with participants and relationships stop after the event. We believe that you will gain real ROI by maintaining contacts throughout the year(s) participating in our communities.

Our mission is to provide knowledge through interesting, relevant and inspiring conferences and facilitate social networks of industry peers.
