Accentaigu soirée IOSCO

38th Annual Conference IOSCO 2013

The 38th annual IOSCO (International Organization of Securities Commissions) took place in Luxembourg over five days in the autumn of 2013. Titled Connecting Global Finance, the conference gathered experts, decision makers and representatives of financial regulatory authorities from the organisation’s 110 jurisdictions. Accentaigu was charged with ensuring the high calibre international guests were able to relax after a long day at the conference. The idea was to have a different theme in a different location each evening, with the common thread being that guests would discover something about Luxembourg.

Sunday Sept. 15th: Sofitel Grand Ducal, 8th floor. What better way to open the conference than by allowing guests to see the sensational panoramic view of the capital city afforded from the top floor restaurant of the Sofitel Grand Ducal?

Monday Sept. 16th: Cercle Cité - Luxembourg - "Art de vivre". The splendid setting of the Cercle proved perfect for a tasting of traditional Luxembourg cuisine and some of the country’s best quality wines. Entertainment was provided by cellist André Mergenthaler and dancer Sylvia Camarda, who performed in the midst of the guests.

Tuesday Sept. 17th: Diverse restaurants in Luxembourg
- "A feast of culinary culture". A relaxed dine around evening that allowed guests to choose a restaurant
of their choice from a selection of fine dining establishments in some of Luxembourg’s trendiest neighbourhoods.

Wednesday Sept. 18th: Rockhal - "Celebrating Magic Moments". A gala dinner in a venue celebrating Luxembourg’s industrial heritage was complemented by some surprising entertainment, such as a performance by magician David Goldrake, poetry by les Souffleurs de mots, music from Hot Sax Club and singer Thorunn Egilsdottir.

Thursday Sept. 19th: Abbaye de Neumünster - "History, nature, light and sound". To close the conference in style, guests were treated to an evening at the historical Abbaye de Neumünster, part of Luxembourg’s UNESCO world heritage site. The icing on the cake was a sound and light show with projections on to the cliffs of the valley wall that illustrated Luxembourg’s history as the capital city celebrated its 1050th anniversary.

The intense and extraordinary week’s activity was made possible by Accentaigu’s close collaboration with its trusted partners and guest performers.
