We were lucky enough to be invited to hold a stand at LVMH Explore Day today!
LVMH is a world-renowned French luxury goods conglomerate, rooted in the merger of Louis Vuitton with Moët Hennessy in the 1980s. Since then, the management of a number of prestigious brands – including Marc Jacobs, Belvedere, Bulgari and Acqua di Parma – has fallen under the extremely successful LVMH.
The LVMH Explore Day was run for the Perfumes and Cosmetics brands held by the conglomerate, with the aim of discussing innovation in the beauty space. There were a number of talks given based around this theme, however we were kept busy as Smarzter had its own stand alongside 9 other startups.
We were able to use our stand to demonstrate our innovative technology and explain our vision to interested attendees, as well as to place an emphasis on the scope our technology has to have an impact within the beauty sphere. Specifically, we explained how we can benefit brands within this space to monetise their existing video content and engage their customers with shoppable videos. It was really great to network with like-minded people.
Another key aspect of the day was the run-up to the newly launched LVMH Innovation Award, which we were delighted to be one of only 32 startups shortlisted by an expert jury as finalists for. We will be pitching Smartzer later this week, explaining our vision of innovation to both industry professionals and the public. It should be an engaging, forward thinking and – above all – innovative day! Stay tuned for an update on the process!
Thank you to LVMH for such an interesting and worthwhile day!
