Luxury Society invites you to discuss digital with Chopard, Lexus, Kenzo, St. Regis Hotels, Google, Omega, Agent Provocateur, Watch Anish, Jumeirah Hotels & more…


As the world’s leading business resource for the luxury industry – digital from day one – the intersection of luxury brands and new technologies is something close to our heart. The digital revolution has allowed Luxury Society to virtually connect over 30,000 luxury executives in 150 countries, and to discuss industry issues daily with more than 60,000 individuals on Twitter.

The information age has made the world a truly global place, boosting consumer expectations in a time of constant connectivity. It has democratised access to information, forever changing the way that luxury brands interact with their audience.

With change comes challenges. Aside from the fact that the luxury industry was slow to leverage digital technology, platforms, devices and technologies evolve at such a rapid rate that what was groundbreaking today, is often obsolete tomorrow. Yet consumers have never demanded so much from brands.


 The information age has made the world a truly global place, boosting consumer expectations 


They want globally consistent, fully integrated experiences that will allow them to purchase and engage luxury wherever they are in the universe, using whichever device takes their fancy. We, as the luxury industry, can no longer ignore the confronting tools and technologies that will bring our products and services to the next generation.

As scary as it may be to think that (real) leather can be grown in a laboratory, using the cells of bovines, or that a piece of silver jewellery can be realised by a printer, the future is fast arriving. And the opportunities presented to luxury brands are far too great to be ignored.

We invite you to connect, inform and inspire your industry colleagues in London on Wednesday 13th May, in partnership with Bloomberg, to discuss all these challenges and more. And to participate in the #luxdigital discussion.
