Thriving after Brexit
Following the result of the historic EU referendum, Walpole identified five areas of concern for the UK luxury goods sector. A member briefing workshop with expert speakers, followed by a series of roundtables and consultations, allowed Walpole to offer and receive a view of the political, business and economic outlook in the wake of Britain’s decision to leave the EU. This intelligence then formed the basis of the luxury industry’s manifesto: Thriving after Brexit: The impact of leaving the EU on the UK’s luxury goods sector and policy recommendations, launched in February 2017.
