The Nightlife Cultural Initiative (NCI) in cooperation with the Responsible Hospitality Institute (RHI) will be hosting a webinar next Tuesday entitled “The Business and Culture of New York Nightlife.”
The goal of this discussion is to tie the public support of nightlife with its economic success. A strong nightlife industry stimulates job creation, tourism and cultural development. However, if public perception focuses only on the negative aspects of nightlife and ignores the benefits, the entire industry and its related markets can suffer. The city as a whole can be weakened. This webinar will highlight the cultural benefits nightlife brings to any city and explain the challenges that nightlife currently faces in New York City.
The speaker, Gamal Hennessy, is the President of NCI and author of the book Seize the Night. RHI is a nonprofit organization founded in 1983 with a mission to assist businesses and communities to plan safe and vibrant nightlife areas. This webinar is part of RHI’s Sociable City program which includes regular discussions online and in conferences designed to enhance and facilitate hospitality and nightlife nationwide.
Anyone interested in participating in this or any other Sociable City event can find more information on their registration page.
