Urbano Communities

Urbano Create

Urbano Create is a network which connects together those in TV, film, animation, advertising, publishing alongside other creatives, including branding, marketing, design, copywriting and strategy. Create is where architects can meet interior designers, wordsmiths connect to web developers, digital experts meet those who can draw, and those dealing with external communications meet those who drive change internally.

We have seen the diaspora of talent working in all forms of old and new media move from Soho to Shoreditch and back again, and now forming new creative hubs in London Bridge, King's Cross, and at other points of the London business compass.

Urbano Create aims to showcase and those who are setting new standards in the creative sectors and bring together diverse companies - and those that run them - to build alliances, seek new work, and help each other understand the shape of the future for this fast-moving and important UK sector.



This event is focused on biophilia, a conception of how the built environment and architectural design may be used for the benefit of all living things, and to answer the pressing need for sustainable and comfortable urban lifestyles. Presenting this session, which will examine the soon-to-be-opening The Spine building, will be  Robert Hopkins, Regional Director of AHR, the award-winning architecture and building consultancy practice - and Urbano Network members.

Robert is design/project lead on The Spine, the new northern home for the Royal College of Physicians in Liverpool, which aims to be one of the healthiest workplace environments in the world when it opens its doors in May 2021. Biophilia is at the heart of AHR's approach to the design of The Spine and the building has been designed adhering to WELL Standard principles. Robert will be dsicussing how biophilia and other innvovations around workplace wellness and design have informed The Spine's design and construction.




JUNE 16th - 10.30AM

Since 2002, we have organised hosted around 35,000 people at over 1,000 events. Our approach follows a clear principle, Urbano's Networking Pathway: Contacts, Connections, Relationships, Opportunities. Put simply, the more contacts you make, the more opportunities you will develop, but the key element is 'Relationships'.

Most opportunities come attached to a person and these are revealed through conversation. Hosted by Mark Herring's Connector-in-Chief, these online events are a mix of company and personal introductions, followed by interactive discussions designed to uncover areas where attendees can collaborate and find future business opportunities. After the event, Urbano members can access the full profiles and contact details of attendees through their Urbano Dashboards.

Mark Goodier on Urbano 
"I found speaking at the Urbano event a very positive experience. Mark Herring is a remarkable speaker and he immediately set up a very positive atmosphere in the room and focussed the audience. I had very positive feedback both during and after my talk and would not hesitate to do it again. Mark is also clearly a remarkable networker and to be honest I’d strongly recommend attending pretty much any of his Urbano events".

Please note: Urbano events and membership are open to all. You will find 'Create' Community companies at all Urbano events. Our events themselves are designed to develop links between companies and across sectors: Films need finance and tech equipment; architects need software and fly-through animations; construction projects using BIM now include VR and gaming technology for marketing purposes. Urbano is one network with different communities and companies looking to connect.
