The €1.3tn luxury industry is undergoing a period of unprecedented flux and uncertainty as the world battles a global pandemic, with the sector expected to contract between 20 to 35 per cent in 2020.

For the 2020 edition of the Business of Luxury conference - our first to be held entirely online - we’ll speak to executives, creatives and analysts from across the globe about how they’re navigating this unprecedented period, and planning for future growth; where they see investment and acquisition opportunities.
