The World’s Most Beautiful
Business Festival

June 2–5, 2023
Sintra, Portugal

“The most  imaginative ‘conference’ I ever took part in: a look at business through the lens of beauty and love, the humanities, and the arts.”   — Susan Cain, best-selling author of Quiet and Bittersweet
“Like no other event I have ever experienced. The people were more diverse, interesting, intelligent, kind, and loving.”   — Pa Sinyan, managing director, EMEA, Gallup
“The most meaningful gathering I have ever attended. It spoke to all senses, to the mind and soul.”   — Anne Kjaer Bathel, co-founder of ReDi School for Digital Integration
the Metaverse the meta-wars the future of work the future of earth mycelial networks  subconscious desires the Great Resignation the Great Exhilaration the raw, the rowdy the stellar, the sublime
“The most thoughtful and finger-on-the-pulse gathering I know. They get the big picture right, and then they pay attention to every little detail.”  — Mathieu Lefevre, co-founder and CEO, More in Common


It’s time to dream again. Dream big. To shoot for the stars and lift our spirits to new heights of consciousness. And at the same time get down to earth and even below, grounding ourselves in the intelligence of our bodies. We will explore the very earthy and the very lofty, deep-down and high-up: from the mycelial to the metaverse, from psychedelics to quantum, from AI to Web3, from inner development to steward ownership, from truly human-centered organizations to interspecies governance, and more. The future of business is metaphysical. The future of business is life. Join us for The__Dream and help shape the next economy.

In partnership with

Quinta da Bella Vista

This time, the home to the House of Beautiful Business will be a garden, or rather, a historic estate.

The four hectares big Quinta da Bella Vista is located in the Sintra Hills, a mountain range 30 minutes north of Lisbon. Its highest point is near the village of Sintra, a dreamy town that has long attracted dreamers, mystics, romantics, artists, and soul-searchers.

Quinta da Bella Vista was formerly the property of the British writer and father of “Sherlock Holmes,” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Local legend has it that “The Hound of The Baskervilles” was in fact inspired by his time here.

The Quinta is set on Rua Barbosa du Bocage, the old magical road of Sintra that links some of the town’s most noteworthy sites, such as the Sintra National Palace, the Palace of Monserrate, and the Quinta da Regaleira.

Sintra, Portugal

Sintra was known in the ancient world as Lunae Mons, “the mountains of the Moon,” the legendary retreat of Diana the Huntress, aka Cynthia among the Romans, hence “Çintra.” This was the land chosen for retreats by the Freemasons, the Knights Templar, Fransiscan monks, and alchemists. Hidden tunnels, initiation wells, a monastery built out of stone in the midst of a foggy pine forest: Sintra is soaked in mystery. It’s a unique combination of a vast natural reserve and a UNESCO heritage site of bright-colored palaces and lush villas, neo-gothic mansions and Moorish castle ruins, only 30 minutes away from Lisbon by train.
