What is IMD’s Reinventing Luxury Lab?
The luxury sector is exposed to relentless volatility and change. Reinventing Luxury Lab is an experiment-based strategy program that enables you, an executive or professional from the luxury industry, to prototype and field-proof the key elements you need to make your brand resilient and enduring.
Each Reinventing Luxury Lab explores a different theme. Combining the latest research, a review of best practices, and new business cases, the program also provides a stimulating environment for peer-to-peer conversations about ways to gain and maintain relevance while keeping your brand promise.
Themes of previous editions include:
- Future-proofing luxury in volatile times

The theme of the next session will be announced soon.
