Night Mayor Summit brings together nighttime professionals from around the world to showcase solutions and tactics taken in cities that use night culture – in all its variants – to improve the cities dynamics. This is presented in a number of keynote talks, followed by 3 rounds of workgroups with different themes for sharing knowledge and networking.

Both talks and workgroups cover 5 set subjects: Mobility, Night time economy, Public health & Politics, Redefining urban spaces and Road to Night Mayor.

The Night Mayor Summit will be held on Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd of April in the multidisciplinary nightclub The Marktkantine.
