The International Herald Tribune Luxury Conference is the essential meeting point for business and creative leaders, providing unparalleled networking and learning opportunities.
Hosted by Suzy Menkes, this yearâ€™s Hot Luxury conference will provide an essential global perspective on the one of the worldâ€™s most exciting, vibrant and business-critical regions. Powered by an increasingly affluent and aspirational middle class, a booming economy and world-renowned creative ability, Brazil and the wider Latin American region is now a key market for the luxury industry.
At Hot Luxury, international business speakers from the highest echelons of the luxury industry will give an honest and in-depth analysis of the Latin American luxury market in a global context, and debate how to maximise growth opportunities and engage with new consumers. Creative leaders from both Latin American and international design houses will discuss how Brazilâ€™s economic rise is inspiring their work and designs, and share how theyâ€™re interpreting the regionâ€™s famed color, sensuality and vibrancy for the global market.
