Toronto has been selected as one of six host cities for a first-of-its-kind event, WRLDCTY, taking place virtually from October 22-24. WRLDCTY will feature content initiated by each destination with Toronto’s program showcasing the city’s thought leaders, decision-makers, creatives and artists in a series of curated keynotes and city experiences. Toronto will join the five other host cities – New York City, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and Singapore, in collectively showcasing each city’s intellectual and cultural capitol.
WRLDCTY is the world’s first and largest virtual event dedicated to cities, their citizens, culture and experiences. The event broadcasts non-stop from cities around the world, sharing city stories and exploring facets of urban life, stewardship and creativity through the lens of culture, design, economy, inclusivity, sustainability and well-being. Created by Resonance Consultancy – a leading advisor in real estate, tourism, and economic development for countries, cities and communities – WRLDCTY features more than 100 speakers and 70 sessions led by leading urban visionaries, mayors, artists and other enlightened citizens.
Toronto’s curated program covers topics ranging from the city’s flourishing Urban and Hip Hop music scene and vibrant street art to tech entrepreneurship and urban sustainability. Toronto’s host city program is being shepherded by Destination Toronto, working in partnership with the Toronto Region Board of Trade, Toronto Global, the City of Toronto’s Economic Development & Culture Division, Toronto Finance International, MaRS, the Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, and The 194 Group.
