In the last decade, we have served over 1,000 luxury, premium and mass goods and services brands across dozens of categories. Our Luxcelerate System has helped our clients to significantly improve client data collection, conversion and retention rates. In addition, we have conducted more research with affluent consumers and sales associates than any other entity in the world.
