The language of luxury is changing, driven by a younger, more conscientious high-end consumer. Amid global economic uncertainty and shifting notions of what constitutes wealth, our Luxury Futures in-house presentation is designed to connect your team to the key trends and innovations that will shape the sector.
From Serene Hospitality, where brands sells escapes from distractions, to luxury brands promoting the Conscious Aftercare of their products, our analysts will bring to life the most pertinent market insight and research, and deliver strategic foresight on how to apply it.
