The new age of Smart Cities: Empowering resiliency and sustainability through automation, flexible technologies and collaboration

The essential conference for the digitized smart city, redefining services through enhanced connectivity, mobility and resilient infrastructure


We understand that this is a difficult time for many. Right now, we are focusing on the future and are hopeful that conditions will improve allowing Smart Cities Summit to take place this October.

The health and well-being of the event community is our top priority therefore our planning efforts for the October event include increased cleaning/sanitation, hygiene advocacy, increased availability to medical staff, travel restriction mitigation, physical distancing measures and modified food service, to name a few. 

As Smart Cities Summit draws closer, we will be in a better position to share specific details around onsite protocols that take into account the current health situation.

Smart Cities Summit: Your Pathway to Success

Through two days of dedicated content, networking and break-out sessions, Smart Cities Summit will unite the entire ecosystem to help foster investment that will transform infrastructure and focus on designing resilient cities for all.

Congratulations to our 2019 Smart Cities Leader of the Year
