The Future of Digital Luxury

Paris

Dinner

October 11, 2023

Summary

Should you go where your customers are?

We are excited to return to our favourite city, talking to brands in the “marque de luxe” sector who are taking the journey into digital with their customers.

There are stories from across the world where “luxe” brands have leveraged digital channels for commercial growth. China in particular is the case study for Luxe digital growth, with the USA and some other markets following hard.

Paris is “home” for so many Luxe businesses, we wonder whether the HQ of the brand DNA should explore digital as much domestically as overseas, and are keen to share what we hear from outside Paris - and debate the subject with our French friends.

Croissants and Pastries at CF Event Delegates networkingAudience at a Commerce Futures conference.

Over a private dinner we will run a discussion focused on:

  • Building a global digital strategy for Marque de Luxe
  • Building global digital capability whilst enabling local teams
  • Speed of transformation - Should Luxe hurry harder into digital
