Responsible Luxury: made in the UK
Are you working in the luxury sector in Japan, and looking for a platform to discuss trends and challenges in your industry? If so, this event is for you.
The luxury goods sector of the British economy accounts for 8% of total exports, contributes more in taxes than horse racing and the Premier League, and despite global uncertainties is growing year on year.
Defined by names such as Dunhill, Burberry, Asprey Jo Malone, Cunard, and Aston Martin, the UK luxury market is known for top-tier brands across multiple sectors, from fashion and jewellery, to automotive and travel, and hospitality to interiors.
Even though a period of slow GDP growth, such brands continue to make impressive sales domestically and abroad, and the value of the sector to the overall economy is clear, with sales of £32.2 billion, accounting for 2.2% of the country's GDP. Employing 113,000 people across the UK alone, the sector brings £5.2 billion to the Exchequer through Corporation Tax, Income Tax and National Insurance contributions.
But how does this translate to success in Asia and more specifically in Japan? What are the UK's flagship brands doing differently to cater to the demands of this mature and sophisticated market? How are they attracting and retaining not only new customers but also employees? And - for the purposes of our round-table discussion on February 21st - how can they adapt to the discerning consumers desire for a fit between luxury and social responsibility?
Brand managers - do not miss this chance to exchange notes with your peers, over wine and a light dinner at the dining room of Berry Bros and Rudd - the UK's oldest wines and spirits merchant, supplier to the royal family since the reign of King George III.
