November 2018 will be a very special month for Music Cities Events and Sound Diplomacy, as we will launch not one, but two brand new events dedicated to the Night Time Economy!
Our first ever Nocturnal Cities Forum will be held in Truro, Nova Scotia on November 3, 2018 as part of Nova Scotia Music Week and will gather 150 delegates from all over Canada and the world, to participate in a full day of presentations, panels, and roundtable session in which we will explore the relationship between city planning, strategy, development and the night time economy.
On November 22, 2018 we will travel south to Bogotá, Colombia, for our first Latin American Nocturnal Cities Conference. The event will discuss, debate and introduce new thinking on how to develop more vibrant night time economies, as well as on how to better manage the urban night. This event is a co-production between Sound Diplomacy, Bogotá Mayor’s Office and Bogotá Chamber of Commerce, and the event will also celebrate the fact that Bogotá is a designated City of Music since 2012 as part of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.
We truly believe that the night is just as important as the daytime and it is crucial to carefully plan those hours in order to create a safer and more dynamic environment for residents and tourists alike. We are proud to be able to start a dialogue on such topics in the beautiful cities of Truro and Bogotá and we are very excited for what’s to come!
