Executive leaders of cultural districts and cultural institutions from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands, Argentina, Singapore, Hong Kong and China spent two and half days discussing topics of common interest, including trends in the design of cultural spaces, metrics of success in cultural districts, leadership development, the management of night time economies, policy development and implementation, festival strategies, and more. In addition to panel presentations, the meeting featured workshops and case studies about naturally occurring cultural districts and emerging cultural districts in Argentina, Spain, and Hong Kong.
