PLACEMAKING THINK TANK | JUNE 5, 2019 | 1 P.M. - 5 P.M.

HOTEL JEREMY | WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA

The term “placemaking” is seemingly everywhere, bandied about by planners and developers as a kind of cure-all for almost any development objective. But when properly understood—and implemented—it transcends city planning and marketing silos and spotlights a city like few initiatives can.

In this exclusive four-hour afternoon Think Tank (happening the day before City Nation Place Americas), Resonance Consultancy President and World’s Best Cities author Chris Fair and New York University Professor and Urban Lab Director Steven Pedigo will share research on the factors that shape our perception of cities as places to live, visit and do business.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Identification of potential roles and responsibilities Economic Development Organizations, Destination Marketing Organizations and Business Improvement Districts can play in enhancing quality of place
  • An understanding of four different approaches to placemaking and identification of potential placemaking opportunities in participants’ cities
