The Nordic Night Mayor Summit
adds two major figures in the nightlife advocacy movement to its already packed program on 11-12th of September 2018 in Stockholm.
We’re thrilled to announce that London Night Czar Amy Lamé and Budapest’s Night Mayor Daniel G. Nemet will deliver keynote presentations at the second annual Nordic Night Mayor Summit, and discuss some of the projects, charters and initiatives that have impacted nightlife in their respective cities.
Amy Lamé is London’s inaugural Night Czar. Since her appointment in 2016, Lamé has worked tirelessly to protect LGBTQ spaces, and has played a pivotal role in communicating the huge social and cultural value of these safe spaces globally.
Lamé recently unveiled a new plan called Women’s Night Safety Charter
aimed at protecting women out at night in London, and is urging businesses and organisations to give their support. The Women’s Night Safety Charter outlines guidance for venues, operators, charities, councils and businesses to improve safety at night for women such as better staff training, encouraging the reporting of harassment, and ensuring public spaces are safe.
During her Nordic Night Mayor Summit keynote, Amy Lamé will share some of her experiences from the last two years in the role of Night Czar for one of the biggest cities in Europe.
Daniel G. Német is an urban sustainability professional, and the co-founder of Night Mayor Budapest (NMBP), the first nighttime economy catalyst in the CEE region.
Since its inception just one year ago, NMBP has expanded to become a network of nightlife creators implementing projects to develop the health and vitality of nightlife in the Hungarian capital.
Their latest project aimed to eradicate plastic straws from 50 venues citywide, saving 3 million pieces annually. NMBP also debuted a nighttime solution platform which connects residents with authorities and venues to resolve issues amicably and without unnecessary escalation.

By focusing on reducing waste, gathering big-data, problem-solving for residents, mediation between stakeholders, and awareness campaigns, Német’s office has made significant strides in Budapest, and his keynote will explore some of these projects and initiatives in more depth.
