City Nation Place UK

2nd Annual Conference


Place brand strategies for a more resilient future

Join us for this half day conference to explore ideas and solutions for rebuilding confidence in Brand Britain, from the inside out. Our panel of place, tourism, and economic development leaders will share their thoughts and experiences of post-COVID recovery planning and our Think Tank Roundtable sessions will give you the opportunity to explore more solutions in small groups of your peers – ensuring that you take away actionable ideas and new contacts.

This event is scheduled as part of the City Nation Place Congress – which brings together regionally specific events, the Global Congress, and the Global Awards. You can join as a delegate across different events within the Congress and you can also join as a team to ensure you learn together and get the most benefit from all the discussion group opportunities – group rates are available!
