In 2020, Cities and Commerce Depend on the Curb.


These last few months have marked an unprecedented shift in how people view and use their cities, and the restaurants, bars, and small businesses that make them unique.

Commerce has moved to the curb at an unprecedented pace—and now eateries (and the cities that depend on them) live or die based on how they can adapt: to delivery, to pickup, to retrofitting their curbs, sidewalks, parking lots and disused facilities into civic spaces where citizens can eat and engage.

Join us as we convene the world's experts to carve a path forward on this critical topic – Curbivore – October 20 & 21, 2020.
