Looking ahead to 2024, Rachel Grabenhofer, managing scientific editor, C&T, explained, “We’re skipping from 2022 to 2024 to allow time for innovation. For many companies, consumer demand has tightly compressed the R&D cycle but we recognize that the process to research, test and optimize products before they hit the market takes time.”

The 2024 C&T Allē Awards dinner will once again be co-located with the Beauty Accelerate event. Stay tuned as we iron out the details.
