Creative Cities Conference Kicks Off in Lexington

Lexington, KY – Keeping more of the so-called creative class living and working in Lexington is one of the topics sure to be discussed at this week's Creative Cities Summit. The conference brings together business leaders, entrepreneurs, and city officials from across the nation to discuss new ways at tackling old problems. Event Co-producer Phil Holubek says recognizing the fact that people can decide to live and work anywhere is a particular challenge in today's world.

Guest speakers include noted urban theorist, Richard Florida, author of "The Rise of the Creative Class" and the forthcoming "The Great Re-set"; as well as Rebecca Ryan, founder of NextGeneration Consulting and an expert on issues confronting young professionals. The conference runs April 7th through the 9th.
