What Does Clubbing Do to a City?

A panel that brings together progressive local politicians with industry stakeholders to explore how to create a more nuanced and balanced way to plan clubbing into a city. Clubbing is of significant benefit to the urban environment, but regulations tend not to reflect that. How can we change this? How can we co-exist and ensure the benefits of club culture - its progressive values, impact on business development, inventiveness - be reflected in local policy. We've assembled a group of legislators, industry vets and experts to discuss this, led by facts, not emotions.
