Our Luxury and Hospitality Futures Forum will look in depth at industry-specific trends and their impact from the short to the long term.
From the bundled buys model of selling high-end clothing to the untapped potential of the luxury sports fan market and the growing demand for lab-grown diamonds, we will present the early adopters who are challenging the luxury status quo. Alongside key industry trends, we will unveil our luxury macrotrend examining a key shift that will affect the sector in years to come.
Guest speakers will include industry leaders and innovators who will present valuable insights in a rapid-fire Q&A session. We will also host short bespoke clinics with our team of strategists who will aim to address your current consumer concerns.
