Dear valued subscriber,

With less than 5 months until the GCC implements VAT, there is a significant lack of preparation and awareness amongst businesses in the region with 70% of them expressing major concern.

While there is an overwhelming majority of businesses that realise VAT will have a major impact on their business, only a minority have a clear plan of how to effectively manage such a significant fiscal reform.

Is your company actively prepared for the change?

If there is any doubt in your mind, then you must attend the 3rd GCC VAT Forum (11-12 September, The Address Hotel, Dubai Marina, UAE) where business leaders and tax experts will discuss the impending introduction of VAT. View the agenda now>>

The Future of Saudi Arabia



arab luxury world

If this e-mail is not displayed properly, click here.

REGISTER VIEW ALL SESSIONS The Future of Saudi Arabia “The Future of Saudi Arabia” is a global survey, part of an international series by OMD. Starting in Britain in 2013, the research project has been conducted in more than 20 countries, including the UAE in 2015. This survey explores the changing consumer behavior and perceptions about the future in Saudi Arabia. With face-to-face interviews, focus groups and discussions with experts, the study delves into nationals and residents’ views on happiness, family, technology, the environment, national identity, financial and consumption priorities, health, work-life balance and employment. It identified the key themes of aspiration, responsibility, happiness and transformation, revealing the trends shaping Saudi society as the Kingdom embarks on an ambitious transformative journey. Among them is a strong consensus that Vision 2030 will improve the lives of Saudis and that the Kingdom will undergo an immense change, including the growing role of entrepreneurs and women in the economy.

The timing of the survey, as the country sets a new course to face the impact of low oil prices and create a more sustainable future for its residents, makes it a significant marker. While happiness scores are high and stress levels are low, there is still a noticeable trend of financial prudence. Optimism about the future is high, largely rooted in the confidence in the government’s ability to address the macro-economic issues, but there is a deep sense that times are changing. Be it with employment, education, female participation in the workforce and lifestyles, Saudis recognize that the future will bring a new reality. The benefits of economic diversification, chiefly job opportunities, are expected to come at a price though as many fear rising costs with rents, property and education in the future. This translates into a rather subdued appetite for large investments like cars or houses.

The role of technology as a source of entertainment, information and communication was underlined by the choice of cheaper internet access as the key driver for happiness, ahead of respect for traditions and regional safety.

Digital Disruption and
Emotional Engagement Find out more at the arab luxury world conference on May 22 & 23, 2017, WESTIN DUBAI MINA SEYAHI, DUBAI KEYNOTE SPEAKERS JEAN-CLAUDE BIVER President of the Watches Division, LVMH GROUP Digital disruption in the art of Swiss watchmaking When the man who is credited as having “single-handedly saved the Swiss watchmaking industry” speaks about how the digital disruption is affecting the sector, people from the watchmaking, luxury and fashion industries from the region as well as the world listen.

HANS-KRISTIAN HOEJSGAARD CEO & Member of the Board, Oettinger Davidoff AG The Davidoff journey: “Time beautifully filled” At the intriguing and controversial intersection of the luxury market and the tobacco market stand premium, hand-rolled cigars. Davidoff has leveraged this space to vastly outgrow the market, by taking the cigar aficionado on a journey from brand to experience and by attracting new and younger consumers through the Davidoff Cigars platform, “Time Beautifully Filled”. Since 2011, Davidoff has gone through an ambitious phase of brand renewal, growth, global retail expansion, farmland acquisitions and new factory constructions, as well as a new direction, including the global partnership with Art Basel and launching the Davidoff Art Initiative in 2012. CHABI NOURI CEO, Piaget Global vs local emotional engagement by Piaget At Piaget, we recognize the power offered by the partnership with influencers. Global ambassadors increase brand awareness and desirability, and local activations help to connect and create emotional engagement with the consumers. The digital activation of the Possession jewellery collection is an example of one such success story. CARLO RATTI Director, MIT SENSEABLE CITY LAB Senseable cities The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed – alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure. The contribution from Prof. Carlo Ratti will address these issues from a critical point of view through projects by the Senseable City Laboratory, a research initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the design office Carlo Ratti Associati.

Digital Disruption and Emotional Engagement



arab luxury world

If this e-mail is not displayed properly, click here.

Dubai, may 22 & 23, 2017 REGISTER VIEW ALL SESSIONS DIGITAL DISRUPTION AND EMOTIONAL ENGAGEMENT The luxury industry in the Middle East is undergoing a massive transformation caused by the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the end of the era of overabundance. As innovation, adaptability and sustainability become the new norms, the industry’s stakeholders are faced with the reality of adapting to single-digit growth in brick-and-mortar sales.
Meanwhile, the effects of the digital disruption are being felt everywhere and online platforms are vying to get the lion’s share of the market, enjoying double-digit growth. The changing economic dynamics have put new opportunities on the table, but the burning question is: how can brands create an emotional engagement with their Arab customers? In this ever-changing scenario, creating an emotional connection with consumers using digital tools while adapting retail infrastructure to meet new consumer needs is paramount to maintain growth.

HARD FACTS: With real GDP growth forecast at 0.4 percent for KSA and 1.5 percent For UAE in 2017, GCC economies, until now, saw limited impact on the macro level. However, the steep decline in the growth of luxury retail came at a time of oversupply in the market. With retail sales across the GCC set to grow at a CAGR of seven percent until 2018 to reach $285 billion, stakeholders need to come up with innovative strategies and market approaches. Close to 2.5 million sqm of organized gross leasable area for retail will be available in the GCC market by the end of 2017, so brands have to make tough decisions on where they should be. But with great challenges come great opportunities – brands need to be ready and agile to act on them.

CHALLENGES, OPPORTUNITIES AND QUESTIONS: In this complex environment, it is important for brands, retailers and distributors to rethink existing strategies. It is of crucial that they change their approach toward their consumers to ensure increased profits.
With price transparency transforming the purchasing cycle of consumers, digital models have gradually become part of their daily habits. Passion and emotion are essential in this new strategy, while adoption of technology is an absolute requirement.
Can the luxury business adapt to this environment of digital disruption? What does the future of retail look like in this new scenario? How will the growth of the digital economy and the advent of global players such as Amazon impact businesses in the region?

First look: Arab Luxury World Conference 2017 Agenda



arab luxury world

If this e-mail is not displayed properly, click here.

DIGITAL DISRUPTION AND EMOTIONAL ENGAGEMENT May 22 & 23, 2017
Dubai, Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi The advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the end of the era of overabundance are transforming the luxury industry in the Middle East. As innovation,
adaptability and sustainability become the new norms, the industry’s stakeholders are faced with the necessity of adapting to single-digit growth in brick-and-mortar sales. Meanwhile, the digital disruption has arrived and online platforms
are vying to get the lion’s share of the market and enjoying double-digit growth.
Changing economic realities have put new opportunities on the table, but in the
region today, how do brands create an emotional engagement with their Arab
customers? Can the luxury business adapt to an environment of digital
disruption? What does the future of retail look like in this new environment? conference sessions NEW MODELS IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY Digital will not replace
brick-and-mortar retail in the luxury
business. However, digital is an integral
part of doing business and is vital for
connecting with consumers. Which
areas should luxury brands invest in?
In a region such as MENA, where the
consumer base is extremely diversified,
what should be the digital strategy of
companies providing premium goods
and services? How are new payment
methods and new financial technologies helping consumers? Where does
the region stand in the ease of performing international capital transactions? PASSIONS AND EMOTIONS HNWIs take
buying decisions not only because
they have money, but also to pursue
a passion or because of the brand’s
image and associated aspiration. In a
digitalized world, can brands express
the same emotion? Can a physical
brand reach out and convert in the
virtual world? How to deal with HNWIs?
Can passion and emotion mix in a
digital virtual world that commoditizes
everything? Are digital disruption and
emotional engagement opposite forces
or can they be combined? FUTURE OF RETAIL How will the Fourth
Industrial Revolution disrupt traditional
retail? What are the changes retailers
and brands need to adapt to?
What are consumers looking for in an
era where any product can be purchased on their phone and delivered
to their doorstep? BUILDING BRAND EXPERIENCE Most
of the luxury buyers are well aware of
the brands and products they want to
buy, and the onus is on the brands and
retailers to create unique experiences
for customers. Both physical and digital
experiences are important and there
must be a strong connection between
platforms that are true to the DNA of
brands. From watches to accessories,
this idea of building experience is
strongly embraced by ultra-premium
products, such as automobiles. In the
UAE, Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Bentley
and Audi have created unique retail
spaces to enhance the consumer experience. What kind of investments are
required and in which markets? Who is
making the investment – the brands or
their regional partners? What are the
incentives? Is this sustainable? DARK SIDE OF LUXURY Over
the past decade, luxury has
taken hold of the global economy,
penetrating the most entrenched
markets. Controlling masses’ aspirations and influencing the codes of
beauty, luxury has become the ultimate aspiration for millions. Talisman
brands and products are opening a
