City Nation Place Global is the annual meeting place for senior executives responsible for building, developing and communicating place brands to attract talent, tourism, trade and investment.

Launched in 2015, for the last three years, the conference has brought together 200 senor place branding decision makers from over 34 countries to learn together, debate key challenges and benefit from high level networking.

“A good overview of where place branding is heading today. Interesting speakers and topics that give you an insight into other organisations and places. I will certainly put the conference on my agenda for coming years.” Inga Hiln Palsdottir, Director, Promote Iceland
