Beauty powerhouse Huda Kattan will join Sir Richard Branson in headlining The Retail Summit, a new business event for C-level retailers featuring an unrivalled stellar line up of speakers taking place at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai.



The founder and CEO of Huda Beauty, one of the most successful and fastest growing new brands to be launched this decade, will be accompanied by her sister Mona Kattan, co-founder and global president of the cosmetics line, who will take to the stage of The Retail Summit to discuss how their early adoption of social media platforms such as YouTube and Instagram helped support their stratospheric success.



With billionaire entrepreneur and Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson already confirmed to headline the inaugural event in Dubai, delegates will hear from more than 80 speakers to learn about how digital disruption and shifting consumer expectations are driving a profound transformation in retail.



Held in partnership with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Meydan One from 13-14 February 2019, The Retail Summit will bring together a new generation of retailers who are delivering a winning combination of outstanding service and ground-breaking use of technology to deliver memorable shopping experiences.



With a background as a professionally trained make-up artist to high profile celebrity and VIP clients, Huda Kattan launched her Huda Beauty blog in 2010, followed by her YouTube channel, Facebook and Instagram accounts.  Today she is one of the world’s most followed on Instagram with 28.3 million fans. 



In 2013, the Huda Beauty cosmetics line was launched with an initial collection of false eyelashes sold exclusively at Sephora Dubai Mall, and has since expanded into a full range of make-up products which have become instant best-sellers across the globe.
