Facilitating Transformation

Planning a Nighttime Economy That is Safe and Vibrant

The Responsible Hospitality Institute (RHI) is the only organization in North America dedicated to assisting cities develop their nighttime economy. Working directly with more than fifty US and Canadian cities involving thousands of city leaders from the most diverse range of perspectives involved or impacted by nightlife,

RHI’s approach utilizes a conceptual framework of Six Core Elements for Hospitality Zone Development to comprehensively assess a hospitality zone in a district, or an overall city master plan for the nighttime economy.

In addition, RHI seeks a broad and inclusive network of stakeholders by their unique perspectives. Unlike some consultations that rely on an expert to render an outside opinion, RHI provides a framework and facilitation experience to access the expertise within a community to determine a course of action. A variety of disciplines contribute to the success of a hospitality zone, which is why a broad base of key stakeholders is engaged in team-building from start to finish.

RHI staff and consultants are available to provide on-site, phone and real-time webinar consultation and training. Choose from RHI services to tap the economic and social benefits of hospitality zones and minimize their impacts on government resources, other businesses and residents’ quality of life.
