Festival of Luxury Marketing

Day 4 Highlights

China – always an important market for luxury – has taken on a new significance in 2020. By 2025, the country will account for almost 50% of the global luxury goods market, and has seen one of the quickest – and most robust – recoveries from the crisis. Day 4 of the Festival offers up the chance to learn from experts in the market, and provides details on how to capitalise on the increasingly important Asia surge.
