Against the backdrop of one of Italy’s traditional centres of craftsmanship and tailoring, the 2015 edition of the conference brought together 500 attendees from over 35 countries – a diverse and unique cross section of the luxury and fashion industry – for two days of talks about hard issues and emerging opportunities.

Suzy Menkes and Top Business and Creative speakers discussed the topics that matter for the luxury industry. Is the luxury industry in the midst of a hard luxury play? Do watches and jewellery offer untapped profits and opportunities for luxury business leaders? At the same time, how are other luxury sectors like leather goods being impacted by the evolution of consumer tastes and the emergence of new luxury markets? And how will technology reshape the way the luxury industry produces, sells and operates?
