Take a Deeper Dive
According to 93% of marketers, one of the largest investments next year within marketing budgets will be the virtual organization of events. This is not surprising considering most Fashion Weeks have chosen this season to move to the digital scene. One of the pioneers was Paris Fashion Week with their Haute Couture and Men’s seasons in July. Thanks to its collaboration with Launchmetrics, we were able to develop a platform adapted to an online format that allowed designers to show their collections in a different way – but no less creative and innovative. However, the launch of products and collections in a 100% digital format raises many doubts and challenges for which technology is the main answer.
In recent months Launchmetrics has been working on adapting its technology to meet the needs of an industry that is becoming more digital. In our last webinar, we presented the step-by-step process for organizing impactful virtual events and digitizing your collections next season showing some of these features that will help professionals in the sector at this key moment.
