    How Luxury Brands Embrace the Millennial Mindset®: Affluent Millennials are influencing luxury culture in the U.S.

Flavor innovations and Insta-worthy packaging is catching their attention and dollars. Millennial influence extends past their own generation to impact Gen X and Baby Boomers. Brands that grasp the values of affluent Millennials and can capitalize on their influence won’t find themselves left behind in the noise of digital, retail and experiential competition.

    Jeff and Joe’s provocative and entertaining presentation will challenge participants to unlearn and reimagine what they thought they knew about modern consumers and innovation.


    This session will explore:
    1. The financial impact of Millennial influence: The Millennial Mindset®
    2. What is driving Brand Love®
    3. How CPE packaging influences brand beliefs

    Sense of Self, Sense of Worth, Sense of Time and Sense of Beauty. These are the "Other' four Senses.
    How we create, distill, market and package these ephemeral senses is our topic today.
    The cosmetics industry is constantly developing new make-up, skincare and fragrance products that play to these sensibilities. Packaging them is the challenge. The panel will discuss the psychology of these senses and how we can understand the generational differences in how men and women are affected but them. How we can create and market new products that will appeal directly to these senses and finally, how we can package them in innovative ways that will underscore these emotional touch points

    Meeting the New Demand for Sustainable Packaging

    Beauty Packaging panel features the latest perspectives from a sustainability expert, a packaging supplier and a brand.

    After years of sustainable packaging initiatives simmering on the back burner, consumer demand is heating up the action—and suppliers and brands are serving up solutions. The global move toward recycling plastics, Millennial and Gen-Z consumers’ regard for the environment, and Indie brands’ focus on “naturals” are a few of the motivating factors. Here, we’ll hear from a sustainability expert, a packaging supplier and a brand on a number of approaches targeted to address this complex issue, as well as findings from the first Global Consumer Packaging Sustainability Index. Please join moderator Jamie Matusow, Editor-in-Chief, Beauty Packaging, in a timely discussion with panelists Peter Malmqvist, BillerudKorsnäs, Marketing Director for the Americas; Anne Nelson Sanford, Founder, Lurk Beauty; and Dr. Sandeep Kulkarni, Founder and President, KoolEarth Solutions Inc.
