19. BRAND GLOBAL SUMMIT - VIENNA BRAND GALA
BRANDS FOR IMPACT
The Brand Global Summit in cooperation with our partner UNIDO gathers for the 19th time participants and partners from Austria and around the world, taking place on October 18th 2023, 10.30 am at the Vienna International Centre.
Brands for Impact refers to companies and organizations that give priority to social, environmental and ethical issues in their business and marketing strategy. These brands are aimed at creating positive impacts on society and the planet and making profits. By combining their values with those of consumers and stakeholders, brands can strengthen their relationship with their audiences and differentiate themselves in an overcrowded market. In summary, brands are driving the new wave of conscious capitalism, in which companies are expected to not only maximize profits, but also contribute to a better world.
A brand is a name, term, design, symbol or any other feature that gives a product, service or concept an identity and distinguishes it from others on the market. Branding is the art of becoming knowable, likable and trustable.
The European Brand Institute (EBI) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have held the 18th Brand Global Summit at the Vienna International Centre and online. The Summit explored the topic of " IN BRANDS WE TRUST", highlighting success stories and experience of branding as an effective solution to support enterprises and regions, to achieve higher productivity, to diversity and to attract investments.

VIENNA, 1 October 2020 - The Director General LI Yong had a bilateral discussion with Gerhard Hrebicek, President of the European Brand Institute (EBI), to discuss next steps in the cooperation between UNIDO and EBI in support of branding for sustainability. In an economy that is increasingly digitalised and slowly recovers from COVID-19, brands can play an important role for an accelerated economic recovery across the globe. Expanding UNIDO’s and EBI’s branding activities globally could therefore contribute to swift economic recovery and achieve sustainable growth. On this occasion, the signed Memorandum of Understanding has been exchanged, which has been delayed due to COVID-19.
