The Retail and Entertainment Knowledge Community (REKC) 2014 Conference is being held in New York City. This year's conference will examine how entertainment architecture, specifically theatre and performing arts venues, have been instrumental in revitalizing a critical urban district – 42nd
Street, from a derelict area back into a vital and vibrant entertainment district and international tourism draw.
Join the REKC conference May 15, 2014 to tour the New Amsterdam and Nederlander Theatres, meet some of the key people responsible for the dramatic (urbanistically and theatrically) renaissance of 42nd Street theatre district. Discuss the urban planning impact of these initiatives, how and why they were successful in revitalizing this area, and what lessons we can bring home to our communities. As an added benefit, take advantage of pre-sale pricing for tickets to see Aladdin at the New
Amsterdam Theatre, and close the evening with a special reception to meet and talk with some of the speakers as well as theatre folks in a ‘wrap’ party for the conference.
