BeautyCon—the preeminent global summit for top digital fashion and
beauty influencers, and their ever-growing number of fans—will make its
debut in New York City next month. BeautyCon New York will be held in
partnership with ELLE, at Pier 36 on May 24th from 10am-6pm,
marking the kick-off of BeautyCon’s 2014 event series. Created to
inspire and cultivate a new generation of online fashion and beauty
trendsetters, BeautyCon will also bring fans and influencers together
with events in Los Angeles, Houston and London later this year.
ELLE and BeautyCon’s strategic partnership will span across all three
U.S. events and includes collaboration on everything from content
curation to programming. ELLE’s parent company, Hearst Magazines, has
also made a financial investment in BeautyCon, which is powered by Made
with Elastic. "As a leading multi-channel content brand, ELLE continues
to align with strategic partners that not only extend our core editorial
equities in beauty and fashion, but also offer relevant experiences for
our readers and users. And we are excited to work with BeautyCon, a
first-mover in the important blogger/vlogger space," said Kevin
O’Malley, Senior Vice President, Publisher & Chief Revenue Officer of
ELLE. He added, “At ELLE, we are inspired by what’s new and what’s next,
and that is what BeautyCon is all about.”
BeautyCon is the place where hundreds of content creators—professional
beauty gurus, editors, celebrities, bloggers and YouTube
personalities—come together to network, discuss the future of online
media, and interact with their fans. More than 3,000 of those fans will
gather at this NYC event to participate in interactive presentations,
attend panels and performances, create content, engage with a variety of
top brands, shop, play games, and interact with some of the most popular
fashion and beauty icons who are making their mark in the digital space.
Celebrity and digital influencers participating in BeautyCon New York,
include Whitney Port, Kandee Johnson, Clothes Encounter, Evelina Barry,
Shameless Maya, and many more. Check out the full list here.
This day-long experience is geared toward the tech savvy and socially
connected group BeautyCon’s creators have dubbed, “Generation
Connected.” Gen C, also known as the YouTube generation, is a group who
cares deeply about creation, curation, connection and community. A
powerful new force in the consumer culture, Gen C—80% of which is
comprised of Millennials—is inherently social (especially where shopping
is concerned), internet obsessed, consumes video on the go, and moves
markets by spending an average of $500 billion in the US each year.
“BeautyCon is empowering the digital fashion and beauty community,“ says
Moj Mahdara, CEO of BeautyCon. “We knew this audience had been neglected
and that nobody had created anything like this before, where digital
influencers, brands and fans could congregate and exchange ideas.
Generation C understands the value of their opinion and the power of
their voice. They understand content, media, communication and the power
of creation. They are superior communicators.”
Brands interact directly with this group at BeautyCon, and vice-versa,
creating the opportunity for a distinctive one-of-a-kind experience.
Product integration, consumer engagement and social word of mouth come
together organically at BeautyCon. Brands can offer an exclusive
first-look at new products and receive vital feedback and exposure on

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

Now think of a world that is not locked i...

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall.
As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost...
