Luxury Roundtable is a center of excellence and creativity for discerning luxury professionals across industries

“Having led and founded many organizations across luxury, media and marketing, research, real estate and events over a career spanning more than 30 years, I realized some key truths: life is all about connections and conversations, continually being curious, communicating clearly, taking calculated risks and making informed, timely decisions. With Luxury Roundtable, my goal is simple: bring smart people together with great ideas and insights, and let the magic work. Luxury is all about high quality, excellence and creativity, whether it’s product or people.”

– Mickey ALAM KHAN, founder/CEO, Luxury Roundtable


Luxury Roundtable’s purpose is to make its members the most authoritative, informed and connected luxury professionals as they interact with clients, prospects, colleagues, peers and industry observers.

Luxury Roundtable is designed to be an effective luxury program, whether for a professional working with the wealthy or a company with an existing luxury program or division that needs more complementary support.


Regardless of world events, the global population of affluent, wealthy and UHNW individuals is growing at a rapid clip. Technological progress, rising aspirations, astute investing, more international travel and a generally better, healthier lifestyle have led to a level of affluence unprecedented in the history of humankind. Those wealthy individuals who have achieved a certain level of success and accomplishment have a higher level of expectation – in product quality, customer service and frictionless experiences. They expect more from their brands, retailers, partners and service providers.  Luxury Roundtable is here to inform and educate its members on what their upscale audiences expect of them, and how to connect with the best ideas, resources and people in the business to deliver unique experiences that engender customer loyalty.


Make smart people smarter.


This network, with its intelligence, upskilling, multi-dialogue and networking capabilities, will help you grow your stature, whether you are a luxury brand executive or team member targeting wealthy customers, luxury real estate professional pitching to an affluent home seller, wealth manager in charge of shepherding the finances of upscale clients, retailer showcasing your best merchandise for HNW and UHNW shoppers, marketing or PR professional servicing luxury clients or service provider supporting the industry.

Luxury Roundtable is complementary and additive to a member company’s own luxury program or offering, strengthening the luxury credentials for all stakeholders.

Frankly, Luxury Roundtable is for anyone who operates in a high-quality environment serving customers who seek the very best that life has to offer.
