2022 Webinar: Fostering Resiliency: Helping Your Downtown Rebound after COVID (January 19)

When:  Jan 19, 2022 from 14:00 to 15:00 (ET)

Over the past decade, downtowns have enjoyed a revival not seen since the middle of the 20th century. Placemaking took center stage as economic developers designed gathering spaces for shopping, dining, live events and more for their communities. And then COVID-19 hit. 

Now that consumers are clamoring for a return to normal activity, it’s time to reevaluate your downtown. To do that, it’s important to understand who your visitors are. 

In this webinar, we’ll use data and analytics to dive into the visitor profiles and visit trends of real communities to compare before the pandemic and now. You will also learn tried-and-true strategies other communities have used to support their local businesses, as well as steps you can take now to prepare your downtown for a brighter future.  

Learning Objectives:
  • Examine the impact the pandemic had on the visitors of different communities 

  • Discuss best practices for supporting your retail and hospitality businesses

  • Explore strategies for rebuilding your downtown stronger than before
