Come Celebrate America’s Best Cities

You’re invited to celebrate America’s Best Cities at a party in New York on June 14, as well as kick off the City Nation Place Americas conference in style.

The exclusive ranking, created by Resonance Consultancy, benchmarks cities using a unique combination of core statistics and visitor perception metrics from a range of online reviews and social media resonance. This helps cities understand their strengths and weaknesses through the lens of the people who matter most—visitors and residents.

The awards reception, sponsored by National Geographic Travel, is complimentary to America’s Best Cities finalists, as well as conference delegates like you.

Richard Florida’s new book, The New Urban Crisis, explores the forces of inequality that are fraying the fibres of places from Seattle to South Beach, with urban real estate being gobbled up by the global wealthy while children of long-time locals are unable to get into the market. This is a new blueprint for cities who are victims of their own success, and just as pertinent as Rise of the Creative Class was more than a decade ago.
