With a heritage setting on Riva degli Schiavoni, Hotel Danieli blends artistic splendour with the noble Venetian atmosphere and dominates the Venetian lagoon just steps from the Doge’s Palace and Saint Mark’s Square. Located on the top floor of the hotel, Restaurant Terrazza Danieli (pictured below) enjoys breathtaking panoramic views and continues the Venetian culinary tradition, bringing it into a ‘new’ era with Executive Chef Alberto Fol.

It is 11 years since the FT's Business of Luxury Summit was held in Venice. Since that time the industry has undergone seismic change. In a country renowned for its luxury goods heritage, the Summit will discuss where next for the industry. How can the traditional houses innovate in order to keep ahead of the industry disruptors and remain competitive in the market? What does the millennial luxury consumer want and how is the way they are shopping changing the face of retail? How is Gen Z impacting the market and media landscape? And what can we learn from them? Co-chaired by the FT's Editor, Lionel Barber and Fashion Editor, Jo Ellison the Summit will bring together leading executives from the industry, innovators and financiers to debate the latest changes in the luxury narrative and what lies ahead.
