What is the 10th International Public Markets conference?

The 10th International Public Markets Conference is a 3 day event that focuses on new trends and innovations for the preservation and revitalization of public markets internationally.

The conference is organized by Project for Public Spaces, and will next take place in London, UK in June 2019 with the Mayor of London as our co-host.

What can I expect to see in the program?

The event will run from Thursday, June 6 -  Saturday, June 8, 2019. We expect the program to consist of one full day of breakout sessions and plenaries, bookended by an opening plenary and reception, mobile workshops, and market tours around London. Information about the conference themes and topics, as well as content relevant to the event, will be shared throughout 2018, but the actual program will not be available until 2019. For planning purposes, if you require a more detailed example of what our program might entail, please refer to the program from the 9th International Public Markets Conference in Barcelona from 2015 for a general idea of session topics covered at this event.

When will registration open for the conference?

Registration for the conference will open in Q1 of 2019, and at that time will be accessible here. Cost of registration will only be announced at that time, however if pricing is needed for your annual budgeting, the early rate for our 2015 conference in Barcelona was $550 USD and the late rate was $675 USD-- we do not expect pricing to stray far from this range.

Who attends the International Public Markets Conference?

The conference will bring together public market leaders, advocates, and representatives from throughout the world, including a broad mix of government leaders, market managers, downtown planners, grassroots organizers, local food advocates, transportation experts, health care professionals, and educators.

Will you announce a Call for Proposals?

We are not announcing a Call for Proposals at this time. However we encourage you to sign up for our mailing list for any updates on content or an open call for proposals that may come up later in 2018.

Are there scholarships available?

At this time, there are no scholarships available through the conference. For more information on the Conference including possible future scholarship opportunities please sign up for our mailing list.

How can I find out more information?

All information about the conference can be found on the conference website as it becomes available. In addition, as updates are announced over the coming months, we will notify those on our mailing list via en email update. Be sure to sign up to our mailing list so that you can receive these conference updates directly.

Where can I find information on hotels and travel?

We will provide information on hotels once registration opens in Q1 2019. There will be a reserved, but limited, number of hotel rooms available to registrants in a room block, however, if you must book ahead of 2019 there are countless hotels in the vicinity of London Bridge station near City Hall where most of the core conference activities will take place.
