Luxury, Fashion, & Beauty: Key Retail & Digital Trends for a Newer Sustainable Era

The fashion and luxury market of the UAE is witnessing a rebound after withstanding a tumultuous year owing to COVID-19 – but getting back to growth does not mean a return to ‘normal’, as disruptive forces reshape the industry for good.

We are delighted to invite you to an all-new webinar on the business of luxury, fashion, and beauty. We welcome our expert panelists – Cesar Val (Beauty & Luxury Expert, CEVAL Consulting), Antonio Parasio (Luxury Marketing Consultant), and Daniel Gomez (Chief Digital Officer, Al Malki Group) to discuss how winning brands will be the ones that best interpret the changing consumer trends while staying true to their roots.

The webinar will analyse retail and digital market dynamics in various categories across Luxury, Fashion, and Beauty and how a push for sustainability in the luxury sector will play a key role in shaping the industry.
