Fantastic to see so many passionate place branders at the first City Nation Place Annual Forum in London last week.  This is an industry that is growing in confidence and quickly maturing.  We are looking forward to seeing what creative and imaginative ideas and initiatives come out of these practitioners in the coming years.

It was good to learn more about the activities and plans of Paisley First the new Business Improvement District seeking to help regenerate the town centre.  Paisley has had its ups and downs, but the Scottish town has many advantages, including a rich culture and heritage, with the Paisley Pattern just one of many interesting elements of its story.  Paisley is bidding to be UK City of Culture in 2021.  It gets our vote.
