The global luxury sector grew 5% in 2017 to nearly €1.2 trillion. The UK’s slice of the sector is also set to grow, making up over 2% of the country’s GDP and predicted to be worth over £50bn to the British economy in 2019, up from £32bn in 2013. The wealth and quality of luxury goods and services on offer makes this substantial increase a little easier to understand, with products ranging from designer apparel and footwear to fine wines and spirits, from luxury accessories, jewellery and timepieces to high-end beauty and personal care, not to mention high-end car manufacturing and the New Forest’s luxury hotels and experiences.
Guest speaker, Professor Joanne Roberts, Director of the Winchester Luxury Research Group at the University of Southampton will be providing an interesting overview of the luxury sector together with the latest trends and the opportunities and challenges for our region.

The New Forest Business Partnership (NFBP) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on supporting local businesses and growing the New Forest economy.
NFBP hosts lots of opportunities throughout the year for local businesses to come together, leading to useful connections and contacts, sharing of ideas, collaboration on projects and opportunities for new business.
There is a calendar of events covering topics to help local businesses stay informed and competitive. Experts in a wide range of topics are invited to share their knowledge and the training materials are then made available to members.
All events are at cost for New Forest Business Partnership members. Non-members are also welcome to attend.
Breakfast meetings normally run from 7.30 to 9.30 am at various locations across the New Forest.
The NFBP Board includes representatives from all major business sectors and areas of the New Forest as well as Brockenhurst College, New Forest District Council, New Forest National Park Authority, Hampshire County Council and Totton College. In 2019 the NFBP Board is leading an implementation group to ensure the successful delivery of the New Forest Economic Development Strategy.
Every year the achievements of businesses in the New Forest are celebrated with the Brilliance in Business Awards. There are eight individual categories in areas such as investment in the workplace, enterprise and innovation, entrepreneurship, development of technologies and green policies and from these winners is selected the New Forest Business of the Year.
We encourage all businesses large and small, B2B and B2C, to join the momentum of the New Forest Business Partnership!
As a member you enjoy member at cost rates at a wide range of training events and networking opportunities as well as the opportunity to exhibit within the Local Business Village at the New Forest Show, take part in the annual Golf Day, and enter the Brilliance in Business Awards.
In fact if you attend just five breakfast events you will usually cover the cost of your membership in the savings gained!
There is also a members only area on the website which gives you an opportunity to profile your business and access additional content including presentation slides for events whether or not you were able to attend them, and member only blog posts.
You can also showcase your business by demonstrating your knowledge and services by headlining a business breakfast and/or facilitating training workshops.
