HOW COMMUNITY HELPS BUILD BRANDS & THE RISE OF COLLABORATIONS
A finding from the recent Luxury Marketing Council Strategy Summit shows that there has been a dramatic rise of collaborations among kindred spirit luxury brands. In 1995, in a room of 100 people maybe five would be interested in collaborating together. Today in a room of 100, conservatively, 75 have worked with another luxury brand to win more customers like their best customers. Hear from leaders of luxury on the opportunities abound with collaborations, and the importance of fostering community within your brand.
