The FT Business of Luxury Summit is the benchmark event for the industry, attended by senior luxury executives and financial professionals from around the world. This year, we will return to Europe, at a time of extraordinary political, economic and social change. The 2017 Summit will take place in Lisbon, one of Europe’s most dynamic and evolving cities, where we will be discussing craftsmanship, manufacture and the markets of the future. How are manufacturing skills being protected and nurtured by the big brands? What initiatives are they taking to train new generations of artisans? How do you run a global business and retain an authentic heritage? Does luxury require new narratives or creative leadership?
