Welcome to the September 2019 edition of Diary Dates. Diary Dates is the world's leading information source for urban themed events and this issue is packed with new events etc.

In this edition of Diary Dates:


As the northen hemisphere returns from the summer holidays to what is normally a very busy September for conferences, we note the numbers are the lowest in the last 19 years. Conversely, November is now at it's highest, a sign of a shift in the calendar to later in the year.

Our 2020 calendar is nearing 100 listings already, confirming once again that Urbanicity is the place to be seen. Email me if you have an event to add.

Best wishes

Alistair Campbell
