The Walpole British Luxury Summit 2022 will bring together over 300 luxury professionals and expert speakers sharing their unique insights, exclusive analysis and cutting-edge research. Throughout the day we will take a detailed look at what’s next for British luxury, including discussions around what's shaping consumer thought in China and the Gulf region, the importance of experiential luxury, Britain as the prime destination for the affluent global tourist, how to translate your brand into the metaverse and much, much more.

We're delighted to confirm that Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability & Instituational Affairs Officer of Kering (pictured above, centre) will be speaking with British Vogue Contributing European Sustainability Editor Dana Thomas about the business of uniting people, planet and profie. Furthermore, we will host a conversation with Brian Duffy, CEO of The Watches of Switzerland Group (pictured above, left), about the booming watch market and the longevity of the luxury customer.

 

Misan Harriman (pictured above, right) will be speaking about Britain as a global cultural hub in his role as Chair of the Southbank Centre. A photographer, entrepreneur and social activist, Harriman is one of the most widely-shared photographers of the Black Lives Matter movement and is also the first black person in the 104 year history of British Vogue to shoot the cover of its September issue. His commissions include royal, private and high profile portraiture as well as reportage documenting and covering behind the scenes at major awards, music festivals and film sets.

We have assembled a stellar line-up for our panel discussion on brand building in the Metaverse, including Leanne Elliott-Young, Co-Founder and CEO of The Institute of Digital Fashion, Sam Falic, Co-Founder and President of BlockBar, and Tom Grogan, Chief Executive Officer of MDRxTECH LLP, moderated by Sarah Shannon, Editorial Director of Vogue Business.
