2020 Condé Nast International Luxury Conference travels to Vienna

The sixth annual Condé Nast International Luxury Conference will take place in Vienna, Austria, on 28-30 April 2020, in partnership with Guaranty Trust Bank.

With the theme “Gateways To Luxury,” the conference will explore commercial and creative opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the topics impacting the global luxury industry, including technology, sustainability, and inclusivity.

500 of the luxury and fashion world’s most influential, creative and impactful figures will gather in Vienna for two days of learning, networking, and discovery in one of Europe’s most attractive cities. Connecting East and West, filled with culture, art, and design, Vienna has inspired the creative community for many years, and has long been a financial and business hub for the CEE region.

Suzy Menkes, Host and Curator of the conference, says:

2020 marks 30 years of extraordinary social and economic change in Central and Eastern Europe.

Together with speakers from around the world, and my Condé Nast colleagues, I plan to explore how economic development in the CEE region is creating opportunities for the global luxury and fashion industry. We will also explore the crucial global topics of inclusivity, sustainability, and the emergence of new sources of creativity.

Vienna is the perfect setting for our discussions, with its history as a meeting point, and – of course – its famed coffeehouse culture! As ever, Condé Nast looks beyond the familiar hot spots of luxury to discover new and intriguing areas of influence. 

I hope you will join me to discover ‘Gateways to Luxury.’”
