After Clermont-Ferrand (2017) and Vitoria-Gasteiz (2019), it is the City of Santiago de Querétaro in Mexico that will welcome the next Conference of the International Network of Michelin Cities.
After an online vote organized during the summer 2019, 22 network cities members have designated unanimously Santiago de Querétaro as host for the 2021 Conference.
A change of continent is now certain for the next members and partners meeting, but the goal remains the same : link the cities.
To continue the work initiated during the last 2 Conferences, the 3rd Conference will allow the members to develop collaborative projects, search new cooperations and create new connections.
The Conferences take place every 2 years and it is the highlight of the International Network life. They are open to the members (the cities) and also to their partners on their territories, in order to make public or private sector cooperate together.
For Luis Bernardo Nava Guerrero, Mayor of Querétaro, the main theme will be innovation.
Congratulations to the Mexican city of our Network !
Save the date ! From 24th till 26th March 2021 in Querétaro, Mexico, for the 3rd Conference.
