A unique opportunity has arisen for all who have interest in night life. Night mayors from all across the world will gather at the heart of Amsterdam on a first-ever Night Mayor Summit at the invitation of the capital’s night mayor Mirik Milan. The event is taking place on the 22 and 23 April in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) following the EU Capitals Mayors’ Meeting (21 April) due to the Dutch presidency of the council of European Union. The event is an international conference and will discuss the importance of nightlife and its cultural and economic impact amongst the many other major topics.
Nightlife is the driving force of fashion, culture, music and trends and is essential for the image and branding of a city. A vibrant nightlife is one of the indicators of quality of life in a city or region but also of the economic business climate.
Amsterdam is standing at the forefront when it comes to revolutionizing the night and strongly believes in the exchange of experience and knowledge between people playing vital roles in it.
Art, culture, the creative industry, diversity, safety, public health and transport — all those topics will be covered at the conference by some of world’s most influential speakers and industry key-players.
The Night Mayor Summit is a two-day event that will connect night mayors, civil servants, entrepreneurs, organizations, the creative industries and research institutions.
The agenda of the conference will revolve around five key topics: Night Time Economy, Public health & Politics, Redefining Urban Spaces, Mobility and Road to Night Mayor.
The program features inspiring speakers like Duncan Stutterheim (ID&T/SFX) and representatives from Berlin Club Commission. Amongst the many influencers would be Carolien Gehrels (Arcadis Engineering) and Mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan.
Expert sessions will be held by speakers from organizations like: IAmsterdam, Enter the Void(DE), Amsterdam Dance Event, NTIA(UK), Todays Art, Museum Night, PartyPlus(CH), Newnet(EU). Night Mayors from Paris, London, Toulouse, Zurich, Toyko and Stockholm will attend.
