As has become a prevailing theme for The Peninsula Hotels within this function, we conducted a global search for the very best in sales, marketing, and communications professionals from across the five-star luxury hotels sector, and the luxury fashion and retail industry. Through our market investigations we have found that the pace of change and consumer demand within luxury retail provides a degree of innovation and agility when maintaining a refreshing approach within a heavily saturated hospitality market. This is especially the case within gateway metropolitan settings.
