What is CityLab?

Bloomberg CityLab, the preeminent global cities summit organized by Bloomberg Philanthropies in partnership with the Aspen Institute, brings together global mayors alongside prominent city innovators, business leaders, urban experts, artists, and activists to discuss and discover replicable solutions to pressing issues—from leading their communities through pandemic recovery to welcoming refugees from global conflicts to combating climate change.

Who is CityLab For?

Bloomberg CityLab is for city leaders and experts focused on doubling down on innovation to find and replicate the best solutions for cities’ most urgent concerns such as strengthening education; advancing social justice; fortifying transportation; bolstering the arts; and increasing public trust and social cohesion. 

Where is CityLab?

Taking place in Amsterdam, 2022 programming will showcase innovations unique to Europe and explore the shared hurdles and possibilities faced by cities and towns around the world as they look towards recovery and create opportunities for people and communities to thrive.

Past CityLab conferences have been hosted in New York, Los Angeles, London, Miami, Paris, Detroit, and Washington, D.C.
