“I’m delighted that AVA is returning to London,” said Night Czar Amy Lamé. “This exciting festival and conference, taking place at some of the capital’s most loved venues, features an illustrious line-up of artists and industry leaders. As our city’s first Night Czar, I’m proud of all the work that we’ve done to protect, preserve and help the capital’s economy prosper at night. I’m excited to share ideas and discuss how our successful 24 hour strategy could be implemented in other cities across the world.”
