Welcome to the In Pursuit of Luxury conferences website. Our overarching themes consider commercial and academic perspectives on luxury.

The conference programme provides a platform to examine and expand our understanding of the concept of luxury and to provide a refreshing context to the debates surrounding the subject.

Our conferences take a critical look at a range of issues, some well-established, others neglected. This provides a focus for the exploration of luxury's past, present and future.
