1st & 2nd May 2019

415 Fifth Avenue, New York
1st - 2nd March 2017

M20/20 Brand
Innovation Meet-up



In an era where the commerce landscape is evolving at a faster pace than ever before, a company’s ability to innovate externally - to tap the fresh value-creating ideas of its employees and those of its partners, customers, suppliers and other parties beyond its own boundaries - has become a core driver of growth, performance and valuation. There is a wide gap between the aspirations of executives in brands and retailers to innovate and the ability to execute, which leads to disappointing performance, internal conflicts and major problems for the innovation ecosystem overall.

The External Innovation team at Estee Lauder invite you to a drinks reception within the M20/20 Summit to hear from Chaz Giles, Global Head of External Innovation and Neil Soni, External Innovation about their own experiences in building an external innovation strategy framework and effectively deploying that strategy across brands, business units, and partners to drive tangible results.

Please register your interest to attend this meet-up here and one of the M20/20 team will be in touch to let you know if you have been accepted to this event.

The FUTR is here. M20/20 expands into FUtureTRends; the year-round conversation on the future of consumer-facing commerce.

In 2015 we created our vision for a new type of event. Millennial 20/20 was disruptive, both in terms of format and content. We were quick to identify the rapidly-changing consumer landscape driven by the digitally-savvy, mobile-first, tech-native millennial generation. Our vision was to bring together brands and retailers with the latest solutions and innovations able to meet these needs and transform each part of the customer journey.

After our successful launch in London, demand from our community took us all over the world, hosting summits in Singapore, New York and Sydney in just 18 months.

Over this time, we witnessed multiple trends, technologies, innovations and business models that held the potential to disrupt the way brands and retailers operate. It became apparent that these changes were moving at a much faster pace than we ever imagined. While still driven by empowered consumers, we identified trends that were in the near-future that we wanted to bring to life through our events.

FUTR is our own evolution. FUTR is actively engaged in next-generation commerce. FUTR is the must-attend event to identify what’s next.

The FUTR is here.

This isn’t just a conference and exhibition. FUTR is an authentic global community for those who want to stay at the cutting-edge of insights, technology and solutions. The move to FUTR is not only a change of name, but a new commitment to year-round conversation for analysis and insight-sharing. A watering hole for the future-focused leaders who want to see “what’s next”, understand how to bridge ‘the gap between now and next’, while carrying forward authentic values with no baggage. FUTR is both cross-industry and global. We strive to find the lessons from across the globe to inspire and mobilise leaders as they seek to connect with today’s consumer.

M20/20 was the launch pad for us to understand this space; to listen and learn what leaders and innovators really want. FUTR is the next chapter.

Whether it’s accessing brand-new content at one of our summits, attending insightful roundtables and workshops, or gaining knowledge from our newly-launched research platform FUTR Insights; we want you to be part of FUTR for all Future Trends.
