For many years Asia and Asian clients have been driving the luxury industry’s growth. But since 2013, China’s economy is experiencing upheavals that have been affecting this sector. Is it possible to anticipate changes in the Chinese economy in the medium term? To what extent the slowdown in Chinese economic growth does affect the regional economy? What are the challenges created by this new situation and what are the consequences for the luxury industry globally? How to seduce and better cater at increasingly mobile Chinese clients? Are Chinese customers tired of luxury? Are European brands challenged by domestic, regional or international luxury brands?… These are some of the key issues professionals are facing and that the conference has been addressing with the contribution of leading experts in their respective fields.

Geographically located between China and Japan, South Korea seems to be culturally closer to Japan than China. However, with growth rates between 3 and 4% in recent years, it is closer to the Chinese dynamism while its Japanese neighbor is still struggling to emerge from 20 years of economic crisis … How can the South Korean dynamism be explained and what are the perspectives for this market and its neighbors? What kind of relationship do Koreans have to luxury? Can it be compared to one or other of its larger neighbors? A parallel view of three key Asian markets.

Since 2008 Europe has plunged into what is now called the “debt crisis”. Drastic cuts in public spending, fall of domestic consumption, recession… It is hard to evaluate when and how this crisis will come to an end. Hence, it is only logical to wonder who the remaining luxury clients in Europe are and to propose a cluster analysis of these clients.
