5th International East meets West Conference, Vienna

On Friday, June 14th 2019, the 5th International East meets West Conference took place in Vienna, Austria, at the stylish SO/ Vienna.

It was again a memorable experience! The contribution of speakers and participants confirmed once again that it is all about people. Throughout the day we brought together 130 guests from 28 countries, our largest ever audience, the location was impressive, the agenda rich but it was the participants who made the conference a real success! LGBTI business again made it dominantly on the stage, as it is our strategy how to create positive public awareness of the LGBTI Community across Eastern and Western Europe. LGBTI Small Businesses / Entrepreneurs, Business leaders, NGOs and policy makers presented their views and actions in the field of LGBT Business.
