Meetings for consumer brand leaders

UPPER CLASH is a meetings and events brand launched six years ago, by Leon Bailey-Green, to connect leaders involved in retail, e-commerce and luxury.

Based in London our events have comprised of panel talks, roundtable discussions, drinks receptions and group meetings.

Over the years we have hosted conversations on everything from luxury trends to reaching profitability, working with influencers and marketing to Chinese consumers. We’ve even tackled blockchain.

Our focus is now on offering founders and directors of brands that sell direct-to-consumer, and via retail partners, a top level perspective on growth tactics.

Many of our recent sessions have explored often dismissed offline marketing opportunities, alternative options for funding and the emergence of new content channels such as podcasts.

The meetings take place in private rooms at premium central London locations. There are no more than 35 guests at each to keep the conversations open and engaging.

To be considered for invitation to future events, or for commercial opportunities, contact us.

Since our inception UPPER CLASH events have been attended by directors from companies such as Nobody’s Child, Pai Skincare, Tiffany & Co, Cartier and Fenwick.

Most recent meetings have welcomed leaders from businesses including Look Fabulous Forever, Theory, Monpure London, Selfridges, Hownd and Desmond & Dempsey.

Our meetings are hosted by UPPER CLASH founder Leon Bailey-Green.
