Sociability is an Economic Engine

RHI's Summit Series Provides Tools to Invest in a Safe and Vibrant Nightlife

Entertainment is among the greatest trends in retailing and urban redevelopment, and is credited with revitalizing many downtowns. Consequently, many cities are attempting to replicate this success by developing pedestrian-oriented entertainment/social districts consisting of cinema, nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and retail shopping.

When properly planned and well-managed, social districts with dining and entertainment venues facilitate vibrancy and sociability among residents and visitors. A key economic engine, the hospitality industry creates jobs and enhances a city's competitive advantage to attract businesses, residents, students, conventions and tourists.

The RHI Sociable City Leadership Summit showcases the best strategies to plan, manage and police nightlife and sociability in mixed use districts. Participants access a comprehensive overview of trends, issues, and strategies to address challenges.
