British luxury brands have built businesses on their creative leadership and entrepreneurial spirit, their investment in international markets and an innate ability to create desire, but what does the future hold for the sector in the context of political uncertainty and changing customer trends, and how do we continue to lead, innovate and create sustainable growth?

Bringing together 200 luxury business and creative leaders to explore the latest consumer insights and business strategies, the Summit will analyse the most recent developments in augmented retail; discuss the new routes of discovery and customer engagement; and share best practice in creativity, innovation and leadership.

Be sure to join us at BAFTA in London on Tuesday 5th February 2019 to discover how, as a sector, we can build the future of British luxury.

Ticket prices:
Member early bird ticket price: £295 + VAT & Fees
