Walpole Summit 2020 | New Strategies, New Horizons
Discover what the future holds for British luxury at the 2020 New Horizons, New Strategies Summit, in association with Global Blue and supported by Facebook, VERB Brands and The May Fair Hotel.
Tuesday 4th February
The May Fair Hotel, London
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 as we enter a new decade? How can we fully capitalise on the opportunities on the horizon, develop new strategies, embrace customer trends and how do we continue to lead, innovate and create sustainable growth?
Walpole’s annual luxury industry summit will explore the latest consumer insights and business strategies, look at the most recent developments in retail, discuss the new routes of discovery and customer engagement and share best practice in creativity, sustainability, innovation and leadership.
