Ms. Cheryl Calegari, Global Marketing Leader
Mr. Chris Kenna, Chairman & Founder, Brand Advance
Luxury can be seen as an outdated and meaningless word through the lens of contemporary culture, but the values that underpin it are not, allowing brands to differentiate themselves and their products, and of course their margins as a result. We’re seeing an emergence of consumers placing ‘near’ equal importance on their cultural capital as on their financial capital. Our prediction is, Brands which can offer both growth to these consumers cultural and financial capital will be the most valuable of any in the world. The challenge is to ensure that businesses and brands create and maintain relevance for these modern affluent consumers buying today, and more importantly for those who will be buying tomorrow. Our panel will seek to uncover insights in how businesses investing in ‘luxury’ businesses can be successful.
