The Future of Luxury Retail Technologies

In collaboration with


Dubai Future Accelerators, an initiative by Dubai Future Foundation, is supporting Richemont in solving their challenges in the field of luxury client experience.


We want to accelerate our ‘Luxury Retail Technologies’ where the boundaries between the different modes of shopping [online, offline, monobrand and multibrand] are completely dissolved, revolutionizing the shopping experience for consumers globally and elevating the human connection between the creators, curators and the consumers of luxury.

Our ambition is to blend the best of in-store and online shopping into a highly connected, valuable, and seamless experience for our clients. Recognizing that many of our most important assets have been in existence for over a century, the Group is managed with the objective of creating long term value for our clients. We do this by ensuring that our unique Maisons and businesses remain attractive and compelling through the timeless and unique creations they design and craft, as well as how they engage with clients delivering outstanding services and memorable experiences – in both the physical and digital worlds. Embracing innovative new technologies and challenging existing boundaries, will be key to delivering our ‘Luxury Retail Technologies’ ambitions.
