What do Christie’s auction house, Dom Pérignon and Conrad hotels & resorts have in common? In this special series of panel discussions we unpick the meaning of luxury and ask experts from hospitality, retail and travel to shed light on how consumers are changing and what brands can do to remain relevant.
Luxury is no longer simply defined by a price tag or recognisable label. It is not, in fact, confined to products: it includes experiences too, with the social interaction around luxury items more important than ever. As part of our Monocle and Conrad panel discussion in London, we delve into the shifting meaning of luxury and consider how brands can retain their competitive edge.
Future of luxury travel
The future of luxury travel will certainly be fast-moving. Can small brands win big by telling better stories? Can long-haul travel really go low-cost? And will robots greet us in the lobbies of hotels or might common sense and human courtesy prevail? These are just a few of the questions posed at the Future of Luxury Travel panel discussion in Dublin, brought to you by Monocle and Conrad.
