Why Attend?

‘In 2019, brands and consumers will continue to question what luxury truly means. With vast technological innovation meeting crusading, conscious luxurians, we are entering the era of neo-luxury – and our Futures Forum will help you to identify the trends and opportunities that lie ahead.

Kathryn Bishop, Deputy Foresight Editor, The Future Laboratory 

As well as gaining key consumer and industry insights, attendees will have direct access to our research and strategy teams, who will be on hand to answer questions about how best to apply and tailor these insights to your specific business needs. There will also be ample opportunities to network with your peers, industry influencers and the keynote speakers.
