WRLDCTY, The Global Forum for Urban Innovation, is excited to announce its 2022 edition will be held in-person at the Times Center in New York October 3-5, 2022; assembling a global community of urban leaders in design, real estate, technology and government to share the best ideas about cities from the best cities in the world.
New York, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- “The past few years of uncertainty and volatility also happened to create perfect conditions for reimagining cities and their purpose. Charting the future of our cities will require creativity and collective ambition,” says Chris Fair, President and CEO of Resonance Consultancy, and founder of WRLDCTY.
“That’s why we created WRLDCTY. We wanted to create an opportunity to bring the world’s leading urban innovators together to help change our cities for good,” says Fair.
With New York City as its sandbox, WRLDCTY will bridge the gap between culture, design and innovation, present actionable insights, data-driven knowledge and innovative ideas to shape the future of cities. The program takes place at the Times Center and across NYC, including guided tours and experiences at Little Island at Pier 54, Greenpoint in Brooklyn and more.
“New York City has always been the global center of innovation,” said Andrew Kimball, President & CEO, NYCEDC. “We are thrilled to be hosting WRLDCTY – the world’s foremost convening of urban leaders and practitioners – as we work to reimagine and reinvent the future of New York City’s equitable economic recovery. I am looking forward to sharing my expertise to this initiative."
