I will discuss the construction of a holographic dictionary for theories with non-relativistic conformal symmetry, relating the field theory to the dual spacetime. I will focus on the case of Lifshitz spacetimes, giving a definition of asymptotically locally Lifshitz spacetimes and discussing the calculation of field theory observables and holographic renormalization.
