Jan 01, 2017 Consumer Electronics – Reinventing What We Buy and How We Live Learn More Host Conference

Intrepid’s Co-Head of Commercial & Consumer Technology Gary Rabishaw will moderate a discussion on how the consumer electronics sector is continually disrupted by new technologies, new entrants and business models, and how companies can maintain their market position and momentum.

With new products linked to the “Internet of Things” adding even more connectivity and intelligence to consumer electronics products, our homes are being transformed by smartphones as well as smart thermostats, locks and doorbells. We use technology to measure our activity and our sleep, creating mountains of data. Pro-quality audio equipment is now affordable for our living rooms and offices. We’ve become accustomed to “anytime and anywhere” entertainment, and demand convenience and ease of use in our tech gear—placing enormous pressure on manufacturers to develop the next big thing.

Featured speakers include:

Join us at the Westlake Village Inn on February 1 for a breakfast meeting in which our featured speakers will tackle these issues and discuss how companies are repositioning themselves to build market-moving brands that capture the hearts and minds of consumers.

Jul 25, 2016 The Buzz at COSMOPROF Learn More Sponsor Conference

All six members of our Beauty & Personal Care team just got back from a few very full days at Cosmoprof in Las Vegas. In addition to countless meetings on and off the trade show floor, we hosted a well-attended cocktail party at Border Grill, where old friends and new friends gathered for drinks, conversation and fun.

Some of the themes and topics heard over and over again included:

  • Rash of recent billion dollar beauty care acquisitions, including Dollar Shave Club by Unilever; OGX by Johnson & Johnson; and It Cosmetics by L’Oreal (which was announced as the conference was kicking off);
  • Reemergence of strategic buyer activity with the re-entry Shiseido in the M&A game and the recent aggressive acquisition moves by J&J and Unilever;
  • Continued and growing private equity appetite for beauty and personal care deals; and
  • Explosion and attention around the Korean beauty care market, as evidenced by recent investments from Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs, and L Capital Asia (each of which was announced just days before the show).

We celebrated with former clients like: Dave Berglass from L’ANZA who won three NAHA awards, spent time with the Chatters and LORAC teams, and witnessed an amazing and bigger than ever booth by our friends at JD Beauty/WetBrush.
