About this event

High Streets vs The Industrial Revolution

The ATCM Summer School and Town and City Management Industry Awards Dinner 2022

High streets face double trouble.

Two global forces have come together to transform the way our local economies work, making our high streets unrecognisable to what they were at the turn of the Century.

The Pandemic

The first, a global pandemic which rewired the way we work, trade, play, travel and live. This has forced us to reconsider concepts such as agglomeration and density and could alter our economic geography for years to come.

The Industrial Revolution

The second might be even more profound. An industrial revolution, with digital at its heart, sits behind the pandemic fuelling the changes in the way the people and businesses engage. It has been slowly transforming our economy and society for years, with the COVID-19 lighting the blue touch paper.

We are witness to significant changes in high street business models, the flourishing of the urban logistics industry and a rewriting of the relationship between traditional employment hubs such as regional cities, and their neighbouring commuter towns.

Understanding Change, Predicting Change, and Shaping Change

The return of Summer School brings together leaders across the urban place management industry in the UK and Ireland with the protagonists of the industrial revolution to make sense of the changes that have already happened, to predict what change might come next, and most importantly of all, to consciously shape the future innovations for the benefit of our town city centres going forward.

The Return of the Town and City Management Industry Awards

ATCM Summer School 2022 will host the long-awaited return of the Town and City Management Industry Awards. In recognition of the work of members over the past two years, and our need to highlight how the industry can reach new heights of economic and social contribution in the middle of a crisis, we will be undertaking a special awards programme, honouring best practice in pandemic response.
