The language of luxury lisbon 2018 -- 18-19 April 2018

The Language of Luxury

A unique and original conference subject

The conference looked at the threads that bind countries across continents as the colonialism of the past connects with present and future. There are countries that are linked by language – like Brazil with Portugal; or social and cultural connections that brought French taste to Lebanon.

Investment from new super-rich territories is flowing through these links as trade and consumer ties are re-established.

This map of influences has already drawn fresh and valuable connections which, in return, offer powerful opportunities for the international luxury and fashion industry. View the conference brochure here.

The fourth annual Condé Nast International Luxury Conference explored how language – whether visual, spoken or written – links different parts of the world, and how shared languages and cultures have helped facilitate new commercial connections.

Suzy Menkes and international business and creative leaders, as well as disruptors, thinkers and unique voices, together discussed the new language of luxury.

The programme examined the dynamism of fresh markets in Latin America and Africa, the ongoing influence of technology and alternative thinking, the evolution of consumers, and the importance of artistry, craft, and the touch of human hands.
