Dear Young Entrepreneurs, Young Leaders and High Potentials,


The future is in our hands – let’s shape it together!

We would like to introduce you to an exciting opportunity to join a community of other like-minded young leaders and attend an event focusing on the future.


The President of iconvienna and the chair of the Young Leaders Dialogue (youLEAD), have great pleasure in inviting you to attend the first iconvienna youLEAD dialogue. True to the motto of iconvienna “make contacts to contracts”, it is our joint goal to bring young entrepreneurs, young leaders and high potentials from Central and Eastern Europe together, facilitate exchange and develop joint views on issues of key relevance for the future.


In line with the topic of the 10th iconvienna conference “East – West Summit on Innovation & Smart Cities” that will convene in Vienna from 9 to 11 April 2014, we would like to bring young leaders together and jointly develop concepts for the cities of the future. We want to exchange views, analyse the relevant requirements and discuss our findings with leading decision-makers. The Young Leaders Dialogue will take place in the afternoon before the iconvienna opening reception. The findings will be discussed at the opening panel meeting and will be a focus throughout the conference.
