Luxury Brands Event

Venue: Hotel Le Richemond, Geneva
Date: Thursday 5th November 7pm prompt start
Guest Speaker: Angelo Bonati, CEO, Panerai
Guest Speaker: Tom Purves, CEO, Rolls-Royce

A slowdown in Japan, coupled with weak spending in the US and Europe is forcing luxury goods companies to reassess their strategies. Luxury brands are now shifting their hopes to emerging markets such as China and India. India is no stranger to the luxury industry with its Maharajas and princely states of the past. But today it’s the “new Maharajas – the kings of business” that the uber luxury brands want to target. The uppermost ranks of India’s 1.1bn citizens are among the world’s most affluent. According to Forbes’ annual list of the world’s wealthiest people, India has the most billionaires of any Asian country.

Angelo Bonati, CEO, Panerai, and Tom Purves, CEO, Rolls-Royce will discuss the following topics, amongst others:

– How Rolls-Royce became an intrinsic part of India’s princely past;
– Why Rolls-Royce sees India as its most important market in the next 10 years ;
– The fanatical brand appeal of Officine Panerai;
– Panerai’s plans in Asian markets;
– The shift East of the epicentre of the luxury industry;

Come and join CEO’s, corporate executives, professionals, and the media from across UK, Europe and India for drinks, canapés and a networking reception.
