Why sponsor

Affiliate with the Financial Times and the premier business event in the calendar for senior executives in the global luxury sector, positioning your brand alongside it. The FT runs many ads (on average we tend to run 40+ ads each year), promoting the summit, all carrying sponsor branding, which also appears on all direct-mail campaigns and other marketing material. Advertisements for the event also appear on and in media partner publications which have included FT Deutschland, Nikkei, Women’s Wear Daily, Les Echos, Monocle and Vogue as well as many regional newspapers and business magazines.

A rare opportunity to meet, influence and network with an exclusive audience of 400+ C-level and other senior executives in the global luxury goods and services market, who, with access to millions of their own high net worth customers could be future marketing partners or collaborators for any company also targeting this elusive affluent group. For suppliers of products and services to the luxury sector, we offer you a highly targeted audience of business decision-makers.

All delegates are high net worth individuals themselves, who travel in luxury and buy luxury goods and services. They are also important opinion leaders on what’s new in luxury and are highly influential.
