The 2023 Italian Luxury Conference is a luxury-focused, market-driven annual event that brings together global brand leaders, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, retailers, policy makers, and innovators in Luxury and Fashion.

The themes for this year’s conference are Sustainability, Innovation, and Technology

Sustainability – The importance and adoption of sustainable strategies have both been increasing at an accelerating rate over the last few decades, and are more meaningful to the overall strategy of Luxury Brands globally than ever before.

Innovation is a driver of change and creator of value, often empowering a business or organization to adopt more value-added and/or sustainable strategies.

Technology is an ever-more-present enabler of teams, organizations, and individuals to foster value creation, differentiation, and the establishment of a competitive advantage. All three themes represent an opportunity to move forward in the industry for organizations in the Luxury industry.

The conference will leverage research, experience, collaboration, and cooperation to empower attendees, promote innovative approaches, open a dialogue, and foster Sustainability and Technology to create meaningful value and new opportunities.
