Aberdeen City Centre ‘night-time panel’ to hold first meeting today

A new panel has been created to boost Aberdeen’s night-time economy, and encourage more people to visit and live in the city centre.

The Aberdeen city centre night-time commission has been set up by business improvement group Aberdeen Inspired and will focus on innovative ways to attract people into the centre in the evening.

The organisation will meet for the first time today, consisting of representatives from a wide range of sectors including hospitality, beauty, leisure and retail.

They will strive to “influence policy” at local and national level to ensure traders thrive.

In addition to this, they will act as an advisory panel to support the economic development and planning strategies of local businesses, particularly those located in Aberdeen’s city centre.

Nicola Johnston, Aberdeen Inspired’s evening and night-time economy manager, said the panel would work to enhance its reputation as a “24-hour city”.

She added: “A vibrant and diverse night-time economy can boost tourism, attract people to live, work and invest in the area and drive forward regeneration.

“A part of this, we will be focusing on merging traditional day and night economy to expand our offering in a step towards becoming a 24-hour city.”

Aberdeen Inspired was launched last year in an effort to dispel criticism of the city’s nightlife and fulfil the potential of its night time economy.
