Join us at our events to connect with and learn from place branding leaders from around the world

Asia Pacific 2018

Building on the expertise and knowledge gained through our Global and Americas conferences, this event will enable delegates to learn how to structure and implement place branding and marketing with a longer-term vision: how to engage all stakeholders, leverage your place’s assets and integrate communications to deliver more value.


At a time when destinations and places across the Americas are being challenged to re-think their approaches to attracting tourism, talent and investment, the second annual City Nation Place Americas conference will provide the forum to identify the opportunities created by change, and to learn from the experience of others


Our speakers - place leaders, place brand strategists and place marketers - focused on the role of place branding in building economic and social resilience. They discussed how to direct and implement place brand strategy; how to leverage cultural heritage to build your place brand; and how to engage citizens, the private sector and all stakeholders to achieve place branding success. Book the 2018 date in your diary now: 7th & 8th November 2018, London.


Earn recognition for your place branding and place marketing strategy: the City Nation Place Awards benchmark and celebrate best practice in citizen engagement, use of social media, place identity & design, communications strategy and place brand strategy.  VIEW THE 2017 WINNERS
