RHI’s Sociable City Leadership Summit convenes a network of those seeking to maximize opportunity and reduce risk of a vibrant nighttime economy. A sociable city plans for people’s need for connection by enhancing vibrancy in public and private space, assuring safety, both in venues and outside, and managing impacts on quality of life.

Momentum continues to build a global network of those leading development of strategies in nighttime management. The final program from 2017 in Austin, and recorded panels and video testimonials introduce you to the expansive scope of education and networking sessions.

New Orleans is the host city for the 2018 International Leadership Summit, a year when the city celebrates its 300th anniversary!

Few cities can boast of the music history, celebrations, diversity and blend of cultures in food and sociability as New Orleans. We expect the city will welcome us with an exciting experience as well as a program filled with new information.

Now is the time to build a city team to attend the International Summit where you can share your success and gather a toolkit and important networking contacts to manage your challenges.
