January 31st 2020, PUB and his partners are delighted to welcome you to the first edition of the PUB Luxury Experience. We invite you to discover and share your thoughts on trends and opportunities of the luxury industry, with other players of the sector.

The market is changing and many brands are therefore seeking to evolve, each searching for their own identity. Millennials, CSR, Gen. Y, collaborations and experiences, those are some of the ingredients that will make your success in this field. 

To access this savoir faire, we partnered up with experts and speakers to offer you a unique B2B event, and visualize these opportunities.

Networking

Build lasting relationships with those who could prove to be key contacts for your current and future development. Indeed networking is usually underestimated; it provides valuable opportunities and the unique view of people from different fields and expertise, offering you and your brand their insights in order to progress in this constantly evolving market.

Conference

4 exceptional speakers will attend our event where trends and the biggest questions about the future of the luxury market will be addressed.
These speakers are the most performing and inspiring actors in their respective fields. They thrive through innovation and performance. Since inspiring others is one of PUB's motto, we will fulfill this very mission in every venture.

Experiences

Since experiences are one of the keys to success in 2020, we've teamed up with the best to give you a taste of what Belgium has to offer in terms of: 
- high catering food, 
- liquors with unique products made in Belgium (ENIGMA GIN - La cuvée Royale,...), 
- animated workshop 
- and many more activities.
