The IBA’s response to the war in Ukraine  

Interactive workshop on the European fashion and luxury industry post the pandemic

Interactive workshop on the European fashion and luxury industry post the pandemic

A webinar presented by the IBA European Regional Forum

24 SEP 2020 1200 – 1330 BST

The workshop will take the form of a 90 minute zoom meeting (as opposed to a webinar) with an initial keynote speech and a panel of industry experts followed by moderated break out rooms giving participants the opportunity to share their perspectives.

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • the immediate impact of the pandemic including the growing importance for the in-house legal teams of risk management (including health and safety for staff and customers and the potential liability of store managers);
  • changes of customer behaviour: what will be the implications for the industry of a greater focus by customers on value whilst wishing to retain the customer experience (‘smelling the perfume can’t be done remotely’)?
  • greater focus on ESG issues with the growing reluctance amongst some high end fashion houses to continue on the endless treadmill of international fashion shows; and
  • digitalisation and innovation: the continuing growth of digitalisation whilst seeking to retain the shopping experience through live-streaming and other devices (‘distance selling’).
