Read the Event Summary.

Even after years of economic malaise, the Japanese consumer’s love of brand merchandise is undiminished. Tokyo is chockablock with luxury brand flagship stores, catering to the most discriminating, label-conscious shoppers in the world. As more companies pursue a global branding strategy, Japan’s lucrative and ultra-fashionable marketplace serves as both a recipe for success and a source of ideas for appealing to the trend-conscious consumer, wherever they live. What has the Japanese consumer contributed to the art and science of branding? Does success in Japan translate well into a global branding scheme? Our panel of experts discusses branding success and Japan’s role in the global consumer marketplace.

Followed by a reception.
