November 12 - November 13
This November, Vanessa Friedman and The New York Times will bring together top C.E.O.s, policymakers, entrepreneurs, celebrities and thought leaders at the annual International Luxury Conference in Hong Kong.
In these tumultuous times of rapid political and economic change, unpredictability is constant and competitive forces necessitate taking bold chances. Luxury’s decision-makers are facing challenges that continue to transform their industry — from constant technological evolution to what’s next for China, India and the West to the pervasive demand for transparency and moral equity.
Through provocative interviews with powerful and influential figures, Friedman and her colleagues will explore how luxury companies can win in a world where the only constant is change and the biggest risk is taking no risk at all.
