The 18 Hour City Series explores the topics facing Greater Cincinnati as it grows opportunities and delivers choice lifestyles to its increasingly diverse population.

On November 12, ULI Cincinnati will present the sixth of the year's sessions, The Urban Generation.

Our 18 Hour City Series is a creative problem-solving forum. The structure allows industry talent to engage with panelists to innovate around unique challenges and ideas. Our ULI members are a diverse group of thought leaders. We are doers who design and solve for effective use of land and the built environment. Expert panelists will present contemporary thinking on a subject and together we will help form, create and sustain our 18 Hour City.

The concept of the 18 Hour City is important because the label has proven to be a good indicator of growth potential. ULI, for example, has tracked the progress of cities it designates as 18 Hour, and the data is compelling. If a city has quantifiable success attracting millennials with a solid and growing job base, yet is more affordable than the cities from which they are migrating, it is logical to believe that it will thrive.
