Join us in-person on the 23rd May at the capital’s newest hotel, The Londoner, for the British Luxury Summit 2022 | A Radical New Vision.

Luxury is set for its biggest-ever bounce back: the global luxury market could reach €370 billion by 2025, an increase of €150 billion in 2020, according to analysts. But how can British luxury brands take advantage of that potential? Who will be the winners and the losers? And what lessons have been learned after the pandemic?

We will explore these questions, as well as the power, purpose and paradox at the heart of a luxury industry in flux, on Monday 23rd May at this year’s Walpole Summit.

The event will bring together over 300 luxury professionals and expert speakers as we share unique insights, exclusive analysis and cutting-edge research – and take a detailed look at what’s next for British luxury.
