THE FUTURE OF SOCIABILITY AND THE SOCIAL ECONOMY
The very future of how people socialize is at stake. The places where we dine, drink, listen and dance are struggling to survive. Creative solutions are urgently needed to save life at night—the soul of sociability.
Join us to share stories of recovery, creative pivots, unusual innovations, and future plans
Don't miss your opportunity to be part of a community that has a stake in the success of nightlife and the future of sociability. Every year, RHI showcases thought leaders, practitioners and technical experts on nighttime planning and management. The greatest minds will meet and reunite in person in 2022.
We may never go back to "normal." So let's re-imagine how people socialize in a post-COVID world. Nothing less than transformative change will achieve a new vision for sociability.
Muriel Bowser, Mayor of Washington, DC, has taken on COVID-19, racial justice, and First Amendment demonstrations. As the closing speaker for the 2021 Sociable City Summit, Mayor Bowser reflected on the adversity faced by the city’s nightlife and social economy, as well as the relief and advocacy initiatives she has led through the District’s Office of Nightlife and Culture to sustain hospitality businesses and help get them to the other side of the pandemic.
Washington, DC will mark a return to an In Real Life (IRL) experience for RHI’s 2022 Sociable City Summit. Listen to Mayor Bowser's closing the Summit inviting attendees to experience the combination of daylife and nightlife that can only be experienced in the nation’s capital.
