Event Alert: City Nation Place Conference & Awards 2016

City Nation Place, the flagship event for place brand managers, developers and marketers, is on in London, UK, this November 10th. Following its successful launch last year, City Nation Place again promises to become a great opportunity for knowledge sharing and networking among place branding, marketing and economic development professionals.

Unlike academic conferences (which can be a little heavy on the theory side and not easily enjoyable for practitioners), City Nation Place has an innovative mix of keynotes, workshops and socializing, all topped off with the Awards, acknowledging smart ideas and best practice in place branding.

The Place Brand Observer will be there, and so will be many of the place brand thinkers and doers whom we have interviewed during the last years.
