Thursday 12 June, from 08:30 to 10:00 am, the EMLYON FOREVER Alumni network together with The French Chamber is pleased to invite you to a join event: Luxury & digital media, when exclusivity meets mass communication tools.

Topic : While luxury brand have built their image on exclusivity and offline customer experience, digital media have open new ways to interact for brands and customers.

The influence and reputation of a brand is today built and nurtured in an interconnected world, opening great opportunities… and risks too.


Social media have open multi- way communications, threatening the full control that brands had of their image. e- and m-commerce are shaking exclusive distribution models.

Quite recently, luxury brands such as Burberry or Karl Lagerfeld showed that digital was a sensible option to revamp their brand image and develop their customer base in a very competitive and clustered environment.


Luxury shoppers are not immune to new digital behavior. Luxury brands have to decide how to engage on a path that is traditionally far from their “comfort zone”


Live debate: how these major shifts and successful stories eventually impact luxury brands vision on digital?
