Session description:
Thanks to the combination of wealth expansion and changing consumer habits, the luxury travel industry has seen greater opportunities across the globe. Stronger demand for luxury experiences, digital innovation and issues on sustainability and wellbeing, is also encouraging leading luxury travel companies to expand their offering to reach new demographics and markets; with integrity and trust being the defining qualities for long-term brand success. Euromonitor International is delighted to share its latest luxury travel research and will explore some of the key trends and changes taking place – with a focus on Switzerland – to help answer the question ‘what is happening now and what to focus on, over the long term, in the face of major drivers such as shifting economic power, changing consumer values and technology?’
