The Future of British Luxury Walpole Summit 2021 - An Update

Happily, the fantastic programme of speakers will remain the same, as will the beautiful venue: we can’t wait to host our annual insight event in the exceptional surroundings of The Londoner.

It hasn’t been an easy decision to move The Summit - we were so excited to be back with a blockbuster event after nearly 18 months. But, in the light of continued ambiguity about whether the government will be able to open up the country on 21st June, I felt it was better to postpone a couple of months to a date which, given the speed and success of the vaccine programme, looks like more of a certainty.

Tickets are on sale now - click here for more and keep an eye on the Daily Digest for the latest updates on the Summit.

Luxury is set for its biggest-ever bounceback - according to analysts, the global luxury market could reach £370 billion by 2025, an increase of £150 billion from 2020. But how can British luxury brands take advantage of that potential? Who will be the winners and the losers? And what lessons have been learned after the pandemic?

Our first 'in-person' event in 18 months will see expert speakers, keynotes and panelists share unique insights, exclusive analysis and cutting-edge research - in a Covid-secure environment.
