The beautiful and culture-filled city of Porto will be the home to this unique event. This exclusive event will take place in Porto, one of the oldest European cities, that is now considered a true design powerhouse. Azulejos (tiles), considered by most a heritage in Portuguese culture, cover the city and embellish the already natural beauty it has to offer. Bathed by the Douro River, the magic and mystique of this place are unquestionable. The river bathes the shores of the old city at the same time it is the birthplace of the many vineyards where grapes come from to produce the iconic Porto Wine.

Rich in culture, people and heritage, we want to empower a debate not only in the city itself but also in the world. This debate will be focused on enhancing and extending Luxury Design and Craftsmanship and discuss and reinforce our role in all of it.
