On June 6th & 7th, the Lower Falls Foundation was excited to participate in the 2016 CityAge conference held in downtown Rochester at the Harro East Ballroom. The theme of this year’s conference was The New American City.

CityAge is a platform for ideas and business development, designed to enable new partnerships among the business, government and societal decision makers who are building the 21st Century. The conference provided an opportunity to understand and identify key markets and emerging opportunities; meet industry and government leaders; visit key
markets and meet key contacts; and build collaboration and communication among individuals, organizations, professions, sectors and cities around the world.

Founded in 2012 in Vancouver, Canada, these events have taken place, or are scheduled, in New York City, Hong Kong, Toronto, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Ottawa, Vancouver, Florida, and The Waterloo Region.

To date more than 4,500 leaders in business, government, research and society have attended CityAge.
