Dear members,

On 21 and 22 November we will host a global event in Bilbao in order to explore the relationship between cities and economy, diving into global trends that are reshaping the economic role of cities, the role of cities as business opportunity generators, entrepreneurs and funding in cities, and the relation between urban transformation and economic development.

International keynote speakers will discuss these topics from a variety of angles. All speakers are internationally recognized experts coming from different backgrounds such as governments, corporates and universities. From their own experience and background they will cover the range from a theoretical overview to in-depth reflections from a practical experience. Please visit our Bilbao Cities & Economy Forum website for further information and program.

The conference will be held entirely in English with available simultaneous translation to Spanish.
