It was shared today that Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Aspen Institute will host the tenth Bloomberg CityLab, the annual preeminent global cities summit, in Washington, D.C. on October 18 – October 20, 2023.

Bloomberg CityLab was founded on the principle that the most important innovation is happening at the local level and that global impact can be achieved when cities share solutions. For over a decade, CityLab summits have crisscrossed the globe, gathering the most influential mayors and voices from hundreds of cities worldwide. Summits have made global headlines, and generated tangible takeaways for attendees. Past CityLab conferences have been hosted in New York, Los Angeles, London, Miami, Paris, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Amsterdam.
