Madrid. That’s where our Monocle Quality of Life Conference is happening in June and last week we were there to put finishing touches to months of preparations. Why Madrid? As you walk around the city you immediately see why: robust and evolving hospitality, design, property and independent retail scenes; a cultural landscape that is the benchmark for those seeking to be the best in the world; and an urban setting that is exciting and packed with opportunities for you to discover.
Joining us is a stellar line up of fixers and thinkers. Want to live in a better city? Meet the world’s most famous urbanist, Jan Gehl. Care about architecture? Let us introduce you to Sir David Chipperfield. Want to create a hotel that even the locals love? Listen to Inés Miro-Sans of Barcelona’s Casa Bonay. Need to repair your retail offer? Carla Sozzani of 10 Corso Como knows how.
The other key ingredient is you. If you are in design, government, retail, hospitality, technology, sustainability or business then this is a chance for you to meet people in numerous fields with a plan for creating a better quality of life for all.
The Monocle Quality of Life Conference starts on Thursday 27 June and wraps with an exclusive tour of Madrid on Saturday 29 June. You can book tickets at conference.monocle.com.
