Speaking about the Makeup and Beauty Week, Makeup Ghana Founder, Rebecca Donkor said:
“Makeup Ghana started two years ago to showcase the economic impact of the makeup industry, by uniting artists, brands, retailers and content creators. Over the last two years we leveraged events such as the Ghana Makeup Awards and the AMB Fair, advocacy, capacity building and professional training to begin to bring this vision into fruition.
The Makeup and Beauty Week is part of our next step on this journey. Our team made a strategic decision to unite our two flagship events and include regional celebrations into a single, more impactful event, to ensure we could dedicate sufficient time and resources each year, to the equally important tasks of capacity building, advocacy and professional training.
In 2018, our goal is to introduce opportunities which unite the industry even further into a stronger voice to influence policy within and outside Ghana, improve standards of practice and engage consumers in new and exciting formats.”
Although the Makeup and Beauty Fair is set for April 23 – 29, its impact has already commenced. Public Nominations of the 2nd Edition of the Ghana Makeup Awards are currently open and the organizers are set to begin registrations for exhibitors and soliciting speakers and panelists for the Africa Makeup and Beauty Fair 2018.
