Roundtable discussion: "The future of luxury"

This event will be held in English

The watchword for 2020 is of course “COVID-19” and, although 2021 has begun, the consequences of this pandemic continue to weigh on the luxury market. Over the past year, new social movements and new technological trends have emerged that will have an impact on the global luxury sector, change its temporality and generate new behaviours.

Like navigators, we need a lighthouse; this roundtable discussion aims to guide you through this time of upheaval. We will be addressing “What’s ahead for the Business of Luxury” with three guest speakers sharing their keen knowledge of the luxury sector and expert insights. As part of the discussion, we will be asking them for advice on how to stay the course.

Topics addressed:

  • All points East
  • The future is female / The power of youth
  • The luxury market in the post-Covid world
  • Brick and mortar is immortal
  • Luxury & Travel
  • Luxury & Gen Z
