In the past done as onsite events, this year’s first CLIC event with participating chambers and guests not only from the ABC but a number of European chambers (see CLIC) will happen in the virtual space. We will use the REMO space again, that is the same we used for the ABC 25th anniversary party on March 18.
At the 9th CLIC Event, Mr. Thomas Döbeli, General Manager of Chopard Japan Ltd., will speak on the topic “How will the luxury industry overcome the coronavirus crisis?”. He will give an overview on the luxury industry and Chopard specifically, address the major trends triggered and accelerated by the coronavirus crisis, and share his views on the future of the luxury industry. Finally, he will introduce concrete examples of Chopard, including a new global campaign to be launched on April 20, 2021, before answering questions from the audience.
