HELPING CITIES WORLDWIDE REOPEN AND REIMAGINE THE SOCIAL ECONOMY

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.

BUILDING BLOCKS OF A SOCIABLE CITY PLAN

Sociable Cities are destinations because of their SOCIABILITY. Tourists, residents, employees and students all want exciting dining and entertainment options.  But social economies require oversight, planning and management.

RHI provides a comprehensive framework with the building blocks for your city to meet the social experience demands of residents and visitors.
