Smart Cities Summit is back. Now in its second year, the show returns to continue conversations with the country’s smart city elite and concentrate on the next stage of urban development. 

Last year, we were the go-to event for the government and technology executives mapping America’s future smart cities. Our senior audience included Mayors, City CIOs and CTOs, technology providers, startups and investors.

This year, you’ll join a bigger audience with access to even better content. Transportation, future mobility, infrastructure, public safety: two days of insight, spread across two stages each day. 

Attend to address your specific needs and the trends impacting key verticals, including energy, business models, utilities, urban engineering, transportation and government regulation.
