The Future of Luxury... Is “Made In Italy” Ready?

October 29, 2022 | 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM | Wilburn Auditorium, Drescher Graduate Campus

Join us for an interactive discussion on how the metaverse and Gen Z will influence brand recognition, intellectual property, and the future of luxury. The business of luxury goods and services, many made in Italy, has faced and survived critical social and economic challenges over time – from gaining relevance among new affluent markets and transitioning to the digital economy, to navigating the impact on retail from the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant
supply chain crisis. Will established luxury brands and Made-in-Italy succeed in adapting to Gen Z and the metaverse?

Our panel of experts and professionals from all facets of the industry will highlight the challenges, marketing and legal best practices, and essential strategies for gaining market share with Gen Z.
