RHI’s 2018 Sociable City Leadership Summit in New Orleans on February 12-14 will be the epicenter of insights that showcase and influence the modern evolution of the nighttime economy, including the emergence of the craft  culture, music, festivals, and other trends that ultimately make one city distinguishable from another.

There is no other event in the world that convenes influential leaders in music, entertainment, public safety, downtown development, urban planning, college administration and nighttime management.  Position your product, service or mission with international experts, the movers and shakers, and the innovators who are shaping the future of “downtown nightlife” for cities of all sizes.

If your company or organization is thinking of the future and you want to be part of the market of authenticity and innovation, then this is your opportunity to position your brand before those who are making the change happen .


RHI's 2015, 2016 and 2017 Leadership Summits convened leaders from throughout North America, representing 163 different organizations from 90 cities and 33 states and provinces. The 2018 Summit in New Orleans is expected to surpass this participation!

Showcase your products, services or mission by hosting the Sociable City International Leadership Summit in New Orleans or Sociable City Regional Summit in Orlando.

"Cities are coming back, largely on the promise of unique dining, shopping and entertainment.
Managing these vibrant, sometimes chaotic, environments requires new levels of cooperation and creativity.
RHI is the only organization with the experience to guide local leaders, business owners, and citizens to success."
