In the first of seven responses to an exclusive interview by Intellectual Capitals, Professor Greg Clark CBE of The Business of Cities says the convention industry fits the new ‘mobile city’.

Next week, Clark responds to “hyper-mobility and the importance of education” – how hyper-mobility is forcing cities and universities to adapt.
