Key Information:

Our first ever Latin American Nocturnal Cities Conference will explore the relationship between city planning, strategy, development and the night time economy with the top minds from municipalities, regions, academics, consultancies and the music and creative industries in attendance to discuss, debate and introduce new thinking, action and structure to develop more vibrant, night time economies.

The event is a co-production between Sound Diplomacy and the City of Bogotá, which was designated City of Music in 2012 as part of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network, and is co-curated by Andreina Seijas, Researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

The key event objectives are:

● Launching the Spanish version of “A Guide to Managing your Night-Time Economy” and exchanging best practices and innovations in night-time planning and design.

● Analyzing the impact and relevance of the growing movement of “night mayors.”
