When deciding on an event destination, do you consider the overlooked effects of urbanization?
Most corporations think of safety as one of the most important factors when deciding on an event location and have the tendency to aim for security alone. They may disregard the negative effects that highly populated areas, namely big cities, have on an event. Such predisposition not only reduces the number of options to choose from, but can greatly limit the overall success of an event.
There is compelling evidence that by 2030 two-thirds of the global population is expected to live in cities. It is also projected that by this date, the urban population of developing countries will double, while the area covered by cites could triple. Although urbanization helped millions to escape poverty, this dramatic shift towards urban life, according to the United Nations’ recent report, has come with a price and led to overcrowding and also triggered environmental, health, and safety challenges.
