Why Attend

The Premier Business Event for Luxury Leaders

As the premier industry event, the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference attracts 500 of the luxury and fashion world’s most senior and influential attendees from over 30 countries.

Decision-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs and creative leaders all converge on one location to discuss the topics that matter for the global luxury and fashion industry. Editors, publishers and senior executives from all international offices of Vogue and Condé Nast also attend.

By joining them, you will take part in discussions about the future direction of the luxury industry, discover new business opportunities and build your network. A mixture of on-stage talks and off-stage social events means you can make the most of your time in Cape Town, and generate real returns for your business.

Discover the nature of luxury

The luxury industry continues to enjoy buoyant growth, partly fuelled by the Chinese consumer.

But what comes next? And where should the business leaders look for opportunities in the face of a economic slowdown in China?

The African continent holds the world’s largest millennial consumer population and fastest-growing middle class, as well as one of the fastest growing HNWI populations. Africa represents an enormous commercial opportunity for international luxury brands, as well as being a source of homegrown creativity and luxury materials.

The CNI Luxury Conference will explore African opportunities as well as sustainable business and conscious consumerism, retail success strategies, and the ongoing intersection of luxury and technology.
