R&D Tours

  • R&D Tours

  • For R&D Professionals only: Launched in 2018, the R&D Tours were hugely popular, with attendees intrigued by what innovations exhibitor’s had for the hottest trends of 2018. Back for another instalment in 2020, the R&D Tours are your opportunity to be guided around the show by our expert consultant, Rouah Al-Wakeel, who will inform and advise you on some of our pioneering exhibitors and their products. Topics covered in 2020 include: protection, haircare innovation and naturals.

    Participants will be taken around interesting features, from the Innovation Zone to the Sensory Bar and selected exhibitors’ stands that are relevant to the tour’s topic.
