Recent Question/Assignment

Chanel, the famous Fashion House, has bought the vineyards of Domaine d’Ile, which is an island off the coast of Southern France. The island grows grape varietals for the production of rosé - the famous wine colour, which reflects the ambience of the south of France. Chanel’s business strategy for buying this island’s vineyards - is to launch their first hospitality sector product, Chanel Rosé wine.
As part of the product branding strategy, Chanel is seeking to design an ongoing service experience over the summer, in a hospitality venue in the destination of the city of Nice, France.
This hospitality experience service will not be just one day – it will be continuous ie. the designed experience will be offered on a daily basis throughout a whole summer, so that this service & branding can be monetised mid-long term, for Chanel Rosé wine, and the partnering hospitality venue (which you will choose).
