The Monocle Weekender: Winter Edition

The second edition of The Monocle Winter Weekender will take place on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 March in stunning St Moritz, Switzerland. The Weekender is an intimate gathering with all the senior Monocle editors on hand to host, moderate and entertain. The idea for the Weekenders grew out of a desire for us to share our insights and ideas on the year ahead in a relaxed social setting. We will bring together a sharp group of speakers and panellists – entrepreneurs, authors and artists, architects and designers – to explore topics that we feel need more airtime on the cultural, political and business landscape.

Panels and speakers

There will be an emphasis on making better businesses of every scale and of thinking about legacy, impact and change. We’ll talk risk and danger, and the value of going off-grid; we’ll meet people challenging the orthodoxies of food and design; and we’ll unpack the need for a new gentler manifesto. We aim to leave you with some big ideas and new contacts when you finally head back down the valley.

The venue

Located in the Upper Engadine town of St Moritz, the five-star Suvretta House blends old-time charm with modern luxury. Since 1911 the hotel has cut a fairy-tale-castle silhouette on the skyline of the Swiss Alps.

Suvretta House, Via Chasellas 1, 7500 St Moritz, Switzerland


Format of the day

With the Monocle team to guide you every step of the way, we kick things off with a hearty lunch on Thursday 19 March before launching into discussions and debates. Dinner on the mountain will be followed by a fireside chat and nightcap. The following morning there’s a bountiful breakfast, a morning of sharp minds around the mic and then drinks and snacks to ease you into the weekend. If you would like to extend your stay at a special rate, or stay on to hit the slopes, we’ll make that happen too.
