HELPING CITIES WORLDWIDE HARNESS THE POWER OF THE SOCIAL ECONOMY
Sociable Cities are destinations because of their nightlife. Tourists, residents, employees and students all want exciting dining and entertainment options. But social economies require oversight, planning and management.
Zoom dates and virtual happy hours, game nights and dance parties are some of the ways people are connecting in digital spaces during COVID-19. As hard as it is to imagine, sometime soon, people will be allowed to re-enter social spaces.
Friends, coworkers, families and loved ones will reunite in cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, nightclubs and music venues. These will be the spaces where stories will be shared and healing will take place with food, drink, music and dance.
THE RESPONSIBLE HOSPITALITY INSTITUTE (RHI) BRINGS DECADES OF EXPERIENCE to assist cities in recovery and re-visioning of their social economy by convening a broad base of stakeholders-public, private and government leaders-to work together to achieve a common vision and "new normal" for sociability post-COVID in nightlife districts.
The Academy will be especially helpful for city planners, elected officials, aspiring or current night mayors, police, nightlife venue operators and business district managers, as well as any "big picture thinkers" in nightlife planning and management.
The NETWORK is an online subscription to resources on nighttime management, including case studies, webinars, expert columns, news updates and networking with practitioners. Subscription includes Academy registration.
The Summit is the premier event to learn about nighttime economy safety, vibrancy and planning. Washington, DC is the host city. In addition to the regular focus on Building Blocks this Summit will showcase city responses to COVID-19. February 26-28.
