Cincinnati Selected To Host 2012 Sister Cities Midwest Regional Conference


Cincinnati, Ohio has been selected in a competitive process to host the 2012 Sister Cities International's Regional Conference. The conference will unite citizen diplomacy leaders in the region and provide an opportunity for sister city associations to network, build partnerships and discuss best practices for empowering the citizen diplomacy movement in the Midwest.

"Under the leadership of Mayor Mark Mallory, Cincinnati has shown a commitment to diversity, global cooperation, and to the sister city movement worldwide," said Sister Cities International's President and CEO Mary D. Kane. During a recent sister cities mayor's delegation to Chengdu, China, Mayor Mallory gave a valuable presentation on the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Regional Emergency Operations Center and how participating cities can implement emergency preparedness measures in their communities. The city was also presented with an award for the best cultural city. "Cincinnati will provide a relevant setting to bring together sister city leaders from around the world."

"Hosting the Sister Cities International Conference further cements Cincinnati's growing position as an international position as an international destination for conventions and event," Mayor Mark Mallory said. "It will allow Cincinnati to develop new relationships and partnerships with leaders from around the world."
