SUPERDRUG SEEKS THE NEXT BIG NAME IN HEALTHCARE
– Retailer’s ‘Open House’ event offers unique opportunity for health and wellbeing influencers –
Hot on the heels of vlogger du jour, Zoella’s sell-out second beauty collection with Superdrug, the high-street retailer is looking for the next big star to collaborate with.
Whether you are a health and fitness blogger keen to launch a range of exercise equipment, a nutritionist with the next diet product or even a TV doctor with a passion to front a range of family health products we want to hear from them.
With an increased focus on health and wellbeing, Superdrug is looking to expand its product and service offering by supporting new talent in bringing their concepts to market both in store and online. On Thursday 24th September, bloggers and vloggers will have the chance to showcase their ideas to Superdrug’s health and wellbeing experts.
With Superdrug Health and Wellbeing categories[i] spanning everything from traditional areas such as diet and sexual health through to emerging categories like genetics, there are plenty of opportunities for exciting collaborations. Whether you have an idea suited to an existing category or even launching a completely new category, Superdrug wants to hear from bloggers, vloggers and TV personalities for both in store and online opportunities.
Healthcare Director at Superdrug, Steve Gray said: “Championing new and innovative talent in health and wellbeing is something we are committed to, ensuring that we are continually growing our product offering to stay relevant to our customers. We have a rich history of supporting talent such as Zoella and it’s important to us that we continually evolve to meet the needs of our customers. This Open House event is a unique opportunity for up and coming talent, to meet with our healthcare team and we’re excited to hopefully discover the next big name.”
Gray continued: “Superdrug appeals to everyone, so there’s no restriction on what we’re looking for. It’s open to all and we look forward to welcoming them on the 24th September.”
The Superdrug Health and Wellbeing Open House takes place in Central London on Thursday 24th September. Anyone interested in attending should email [email protected] for further information.
