Mar 30 Objects of Beauty: Achieving Success With & Without a Legend, Zurich

Dear Alumni,
You are invited to an evening conference featuring a panel of outstanding luxury fine craftsmanship speakers.

Objects of Beauty: Achieving Success With & Without a Legend
March 30, 2017, Zurich

The magical aura of many fine craftsmanship brands is supported in part by their legendary history. And yet there are new market entrants that manage to succeed without a centuries-old heritage. How do they do it? How do you build a successful luxury brand from scratch today? Also, is continued success truly a given for existing heritage brands? How do you innovate and expand a heritage brand? Our panelists represent a new luxury brand, a traditional house with a rich heritage, along with a leading global luxury branding thought-leader. You will learn tips of the trade to drive success in the luxury segment in 2017 and beyond. The panel discussion is moderated by Mafalda Tenente, MBA’06J, IWIB President, Zurich. Afterwards, there will be Q&A, wine and a fine apéro riche. Join us for a fabulous event!

Register before February 17 and take advantage of our earlybird ticket price for INSEAD and SAMBA members.
