Sydney will host a new nightlife forum this November

A one-day conference focusing on strengthening the global nighttime economy will take place in Sydney this November.

‘Global Cities After Dark’ is being spearheaded by Sydney’s Electronic Music Conference and Amsterdam Night Mayor Mirik Milan, who was in the country last November for a keynote address at EMC.

The forum will bring together 150 delegates from all around the world, representing a number of state and local governments and various creative industries. There’ll also be international guests from renowned nightlife cities such as Berlin, Amsterdam, Seattle, Ibiza and London.

The aim of the conference is to strengthen global network ties within the nightlife industries and find solutions for problems cities face in regards to nightlife culture.

“Being a part of ‘Global Cities After Dark’ is like a dream come true,” said Milan. “By sharing ideas for a safe and vibrant nightlife, it empowers bottom up initiatives after dark that contribute and strengthen creative cities around the world. It will be one of the most innovative forums from a city planning perspective because global thought leaders will gather in Sydney to discuss what strategies can be put in place for creating liveable inclusive cities with high quality of life and culture for everyone.”

The invite-only forum will take place on Tuesday, November 28, and you can register to attend here (registration closes September 1). The guests, program, and the location are due to be announced next month.
