What is Placemaking Week?

Placemaking Week is an international gathering of placemaking thinkers and practitioners. In 2019 Placemaking Week will consist of 4 days of programming which will include day tours and workshops on either end, and two full days of programming. More information on the schedule will be released in early Spring 2019. To get a better sense of what a Placemaking Week is, please take a look at our 2017 website and program here.

When and where is Placemaking Week 2019?

2019’s Placemaking Week will be held on October 1st - 4th, 2019 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA.

Chattanooga is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, roughly a two hour drive south of Nashville, and a two hour drive north of Atlanta, GA. October is a great time of year to visit this region and we recommend you stay for some of Chattanooga's best cultural and recreational activities that begin right after Placemaking Week, and take advantage of the close proximity to nearby southern cities.

Where can I learn about conference updates?

We will continue to update www.placemakingweek.org (including this FAQ page) with all conference updates. Make sure to sign up for our Placemaking Week newsletter to receive up-to-date information on registration, program content, speakers, hotels and travel, events and other news.
