The Year Ahead: Luxury

The global luxury goods industry is poised to have the best growth year in more than half a decade, but how do brands extend that growth? And how do they continue it in a conscious way? That’s what CEOs and consumers alike want to know.

Bloomberg’s second The Year Ahead: Luxury summit will focus on sustainability in every sense of the word—from ecological consciousness, to lasting scalability, to equality in hiring and leadership. Top decision-makers from the fields of fashion, travel, automotive, retail, the arts, real estate, food, and more will gather to share crucial knowledge on exactly how to plan for 2019 and beyond. Their insights will be paired with Bloomberg’s proprietary data and expert analysis in a learning experience that can’t be found anywhere else.
