Welcome to the In Pursuit of Luxury 2016 conference pages. This conference was centred around commercial and academic perspectives on luxury. The conference provided a platform to examine and expand our understanding of the concepts of luxury and to provide a refreshing context to the debates surrounding the subject. We considered deeply a range of issues, some well-established, others neglected. This provided a focus for the exploration of luxury's past, present and future.

This event was a collaboration between The School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. The conference was held on the 6th May 2016 at LIM College, 12 East 53rd Street, New York 10022, United States.

For a full list of those presenting and the titles of papers, please see the Conference Programme page.

We are delighted to announce the upcoming publication of the first of two In Pursuit of Luxury Special Issues of the Journal of Design, Business & Society, published by Intellect. The first, titled 'Producing Luxury', will be published in October 2018.
