Webinar Summary

The challenge of developing and maintaining a competitive edge is of importance for cities around the world. For every city this issue is framed differently.
For example, it could be determined by distinct pressures and challenges posed by the country’s history, economic structure, size or strategic role. Businesses and talent are increasingly becoming more mobile and attracted to cities that offer both liveability and innovation. And, at the same time, investors are focusing exclusively on such cities as well, leading to an increasing competition amongst cities for investment and talent.
In this session, we will explore different strategies that cities across Europe have implemented to enhance their competitiveness and how investors are assessing city competitiveness to drive their investment strategies.
