Business of Luxury Summit & The Luxury Network
18-20 May 2022
Sustainability, Supply Chains & the Metaverse
In-Person & Digital | Fairmont Windsor Park, United Kingdom
In the early spring of 2019, few could have imagined that the £230bn luxury goods sector would not only weather the Covid-19 pandemic with little long-term damage, but emerge from it stronger – and trading at higher valuations – than ever before.
But the recovery has not been equal. It is the biggest, most globally recognised brands that are increasing market share, having pivoted swiftly to court local and online customers as tourism flows have evaporated in many parts of the world, and reaping the rewards of sooner-than-expected spending recoveries in China, Korea and the US.
Against this tumultuous backdrop, the 18th annual Financial Times Business of Luxury Summit will return to a physical format in May in Fairmont Windsor Park. Chaired by the FT’s editor, Roula Khalaf, and the FT’s fashion editor, Lauren Indvik, we’ll gather top minds to discuss and debate the sector’s most pressing questions.
The Gala Dinner
On the evening of Thursday 19th May we will be hosting a drinks reception and dinner within an elegant marquee on the lawn of the Fairmont Windsor Park.
The Gala Dinner will be the highlight of our summit, in which guests can expect unmissable networking with C-Suite leaders. Hosted by our CEO, John Ridding and our Editor, Roula Khalaf you will indulge in a custom menu designed by gourmet Chef Mark Brega.
The After Party
To further elevate the experience we’re delighted to welcome Fabienne, a well-established performer from the London and New York fashion scenes.
Spending the last five seasons as DJ for Stella McCartney’s presentations and fashion after parties, Fabienne is now well known as the go-to DJ for the beauty and fashion industry. Her impressive roster of clients includes Armani, Farfetch, Belstaff, Saint Laurent Beauté, Moet & Chandon, MTV, Selfridges, and Elemis to name just a few.
