2021 Aug (Thu)- The Future Of Luxury Goods. Accelerated – A Talk with Chopard Japan’s Boss
August 19 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm JSTFree
The virus fears of 2020 may be recorded in history as the most massive disruption to the retail business ever. In particular, luxury goods have felt the pain of the challenge for clients to get into the beautiful stores despite their prime locations. It may have been tough, but high-end luxury is timeless and most brands are here for years to come. High quality goods will continue to be in high demand. One key trend that significantly accelerated during the crisis is “Sustainable Luxury”.
Chopard announced the “Journey to Sustainable Luxury” already in 2013, when most people in the industry did not even know what sustainability is. Since 2019, Chopard is the first brand to produce all its jewellery and watch creations with 100% ethical gold, leading the industry into a new era of CSR.
Mr. Thomas Dobeli, President of Chopard Japan will be sharing his insights on the future of luxury. Chopard is one of very few remaining independent and family owned global luxury brands. Recently, Thomas was invited to give guest lectures at Kyoto University’s MBA class as well as Hitotsubashi University ICS’s MBA class on this topic. Thomas is a long time resident of Japan and is a native Swiss that brings his brand to life in Japan.
Come join CI for another fascinating topic and lunch meeting.
