The Luxury Innovation Summit (LIS) is a first-of-its kind event, to take place on 21-22 October 2021 at Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, Geneva, Switzerland. The event will bring together creators, visionaries and business leaders from the luxury and start-up communities to discuss the new way forward for the luxury industry.
Organized by the Luxury Venture Group (LVG), the event highlights include the global premier of the Luxury Innovation Awards 2021 Edition taking place alongside the conference; the Luxury Innovation Pavilion – a space dedicated to showcase and promote innovation in the luxury industry; and participation of a guest country – for this year, the UAE.
The on-stage Summit program will include discussion of the topics that really matter to the global luxury industry post-pandemic. Speakers will include international luxury leaders, entrepreneurs, and industry insiders. Together, they will examine the evolving nature of luxury, new consumer attitudes, and what established brands and start-ups need to build and maintain relevance.
