Luxury Summer Trip

Programme overview

In the competitive world of luxury, the combination of creativity and management is crucial to a brand's success. As competition intensifies and commoditisation threatens, differentiation becomes imperative. Creativity goes beyond mere artistic expression to become a strategic tool for shaping distinctive imaginary territories and captivating consumers.

It is against this demanding backdrop that we present the Summer Trip, a 5-day programme designed to explore the fundamental issues facing the Luxury sector. During this intensive week, participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of management and creation, through courses, meetings with industry professionals, interactive workshops and visits to brands and Houses.
