The City Nation Place Awards are designed to benchmark and celebrate best practice in place branding strategy. The Awards recognise that building and implementing a place brand strategy is a long-term process: our categories are designed to celebrate the work that has been done over the past year, whether through design, communications, or social media or in planning and structuring your integrated approach.
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.
