The Luxury Law Summit Europe has gone virtual attracting interest from luxury companies across the world as the sector looks for solutions in the aftermath of the pandemic.

The Luxury Law Summit Europe is going virtual in a first - bringing together the general counsel and in-house legal teams of the world’s leading luxury brands to focus on rebuilding and expanding the Luxury sector post-pandemic. With the luxury sector facing greater challenges than ever before, the event brings together the world's luxury experts to discuss in interactive workshops the road to recovery from a global pandemic which has disrupted business activity and thrown up a range of difficult issues for luxury companies in every sector. As health and security is now a key issue for retail, luxury executives from all sectors will share experiences and tips on how to navigate the new normal and ensure their operations are compliant with the ever changing legislation. 

The event will be moderated by television presenter,  business commentator, author and influencer Jacqui Harper whilst  head of legal Hadrian Beltrametti Walker will discuss about how Europe’s oldest luxury hotel brand Kempinski Hotels is adapting to the new normal in the hospitality sector.  Global General Counsel Georgina McManus will shed light into iconic luxury brand’s Manolo Blaknik’s steps to deal with the challenges thrown up by coronavirus – from producing and manufacturing in Italy to looking after its teams in areas heavily impacted by the pandemic with founder Kristina Blaknik leading from the front.

With brands adapting to new retail realities from distance selling, remote working, e-commerce, less travel and changing customer requirements, the compact, one day agenda will provide important insights in to how the luxury sector is responding to the global economic paralysis. With experts on hand to provide solutions on a range of issues from Denton Europe Retail Co-Chair Babette Marzheuser-Wood discussing going international and setting up licensing and franchising operations to Ashly Sands of Epstein Drangel who will update on luxury branding in China, the event will cover all the latest issues.  

The fully interactive day will provide an opportunity to hear from, as well as ask questions to luxury founders and experts, how they are responding to the crisis and what they have learnt and are doing to steer their businesses through turbulent waters.  

The event will feature intimate, online round table discussions, one-to-one online meetings, a virtual drinks reception and speed networking as well as an exhibitor zone with Law Firm partners happy to discuss your current challenges with them via an online meeting.
