MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR DIGITAL EXPERIENCE

Tailor Your Agenda – with sessions spanning across multiple days, design your own agenda based on who you want to hear from and what will be most useful to your business.

Get More Involved – virtual events offer many more interactive opportunities than live events; participate in live polls, live Q&A and live panel discussions – helping you build your personal brand and your business connections.

Improved Audience Visibility – you can see exactly who is registered to attend the event and when they’re online – make that valuable connection in real-time!

On-Demand Content – missed a session or couldn’t tune in that day? That’s fine, sessions will be available to listen to for 2 months post event. That also means you can listen to your favourite speaker multiple times.

High Quality Speakers – this doesn’t change, whether we run a live event or a virtual one, we recruit industry leading, insightful speakers to inspire.

More Networking Opportunities – do you sometimes miss the one person you were hoping to meet at live events? With virtual events you can instant message them, reserve a time in their diary, and email them.

Save Time & Money – tune into an event from the comfort of your own home, no need to travel overseas, spend time away from loved ones and spend your company’s money! This makes networking and knowledge sharing much more cost efficient.

Increased Content – we can run more sessions at one time without the constraints of venue capacities, meaning we can provide you with more valuable content in one go.

Business Development Opportunities – for those looking to partner on the virtual events, there’s lots of session formats that will place you at the centre of the conversations you need to have, including but not limited to; topic specific roundtables, keynote panels, ask the expert chat rooms and more. Talk to our team to find out more [email protected].

Insights – using analytics, we can help you benchmark, to stay ahead of industry trends. We can also share audience insights on job titles, seniority and geography, so you know your networking with the right connections to match your business needs.

Why Attend

2019 was a pivotal year for the skin microbiome, with multinational conglomerates moving into the space, recognizing the commercial value of skin microbiome-based products as the next step in a consumer’s skincare regime but the innovation doesn’t end there…

This year is all about the major advancements of sequencing and analysis in this space, and how we can use data to inform product development. 2020 is all about the relationship between skin microbiome based-products, skin conditions, personalization, skin-gut supplements, and anti-aging. 

Building on the hugely successful global Skin Microbiome series which brought together over 600 industry leaders from Pharmaceutical, Beauty and Personal Care, Independent Skincare Brands, Bio-techs, Researchers and Academics, Kisaco Research presents Microbiome Connect: Skin USA, an all-encompassing event, which runs alongside Microbiome Connect: Human USA as a virtual event, June 3 - 5.

What’s different?

This year, you can expect 5 unique topics, more attendees and more networking opportunities to explore:

  • Ground-breaking research into how best treat these skin diseases and develop treatments targeting acne vulgaris, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis Vulgaris and rosacea.
  • The translation and commercialization of product claims, the latest trends and protecting your intellectual property.
  • The convergence between the skin-gut axis and the supplement market.
  • Personalized formulation and product development
  • Tools to increase product claims using sequencing and bioinformatics.

Join key opinion leaders and expert speakers across three days to translate the latest skin microbiome data and market analysis into truly commercial and competitive beauty and personal care products.

Skin microbiome based-products have been disrupting the beauty industry for the past two years, the question is, how can you differentiate your products?

Marie’s thesis on the microbiome and the enormous benefits of harnessing helpful bacteria gave her the vision and the know-how to create Gallinée’s formulations. Thanks to her pharmacy background and her beauty experience, Marie designed formulas like no other, and patented the triple biotic complex that you can now find in Gallinée’s products.
