Lexington will be the next host of the Creative Cities Summit from April 7-9, 2010. This is a not-for-profit multi-disciplinary conference that brings together leading thinkers and practitioners who are changing cities and communities all over the world and making them better places to live, work and play. The focus is talent attraction & retention, innovation, developing entrepreneurship, community design and civic engagement.
This makes Lexington a perfect venue because it provides region offers a multitude of amenities which improve quality of life, innovation and entrepreneurism, and it contains the open and welcoming culture that is needed to strengthen community engagement.
Since the conference caters to such a diverse crowd, it makes for a great opportunity use the best practices that were discussed in my previous article about networking. The conference has a full agenda all three days which include tours, summits, sessions, guest speakers, and social activities. The registration price for this conference is $199.
