The reason for choosing the Mother City to host this luxurious conference is that Africa is changing the concept of luxury.  It represents an enormous commercial opportunity for international luxury brands since it holds the world’s largest millennial consumer population and fastest-growing middle class.  

The ‘Nature of Luxury’ theme of the event will tap into the traditional skills and talent which have been part of daily life for centuries across African countries, whilst examining the broader landscape of the global luxury market.
