Let's Talk About Retail Your Way


We’re giving logistics leaders from every facet of the luxury and fashion world an exclusive opportunity to connect at our Luxury and Fashion Forums.

These invitation-only, small-forum conferences offer a unique opportunity to build a valuable network of thought leaders, innovators, industry analysts, and selected logistics experts from luxury and fashion organizations, hosted by DHL.

We believe in the power of collaboration to deliver value – we’ll share best practices, knowledge, and perspectives, and learn from each other’s experiences.

Our first event was held in Dubai, a location synonymous with luxury shopping experiences:
