Already a member?

Wednesday, April 13 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. Kindly Hosted By: THE PIERRE HOTEL In Their Newly Renovated Grand Ball Room

Before the pandemic, one of the highlights each year for members of The Luxury Marketing Council was our annual Christmas/Holiday party


For all the obvious reasons, we have not hosted this event in the last two years.


Now that we are starting to see COVID cases rapidly decreasing and people wanting to be together again, we are planning a major relaunch event in New York.


Looking forward to a spectacular event, seeing you there, and returning to a new normal!
