This interactive session will feature presentations from expert speakers on the pandemic and cities.

This explores the responses of seven cities around the world and the streetscape transformation schemes implemented, examining challenges, funding, outcomes and future strategies.
Gordon Innes, Bloomberg Associates, will be presenting on the impact of tourism on the function and fabric of cities and urban areas globally. Also speaking will be Ojay McDonald, Chief Executive, Association of Town and City Management, who will be presenting on the pandemic from a High Street perspective, including the challenges faced during the past couple of years and adaptations made by businesses across the UK.
