Welcome to RHI's Summit Series

Tools to Invest in Safe and Vibrant Nightlife

Sociability is an economic engine driving the development of cities throughout the world. As more people seek an urban lifestyle, there is increased demand for places to eat, drink, listen to music and dance. More people can bring more vibrancy, but can also place burdens on public safety resources and impact the quality of life of residents not part of the “other 9 to 5”. 

RHI’s Sociable City Leadership Summit convenes a global 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.
