Smart Cities: The Role of French Technology in Inventing the Cities of Tomorrow


When architect and urban planners Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett devised a grand plan to make Chicago the “Paris of the Prairies”, they looked to the French metropolis for inspiration.

Today, more than a century later, French innovation is facing an important question: can we still say French technology is the driving force behind the city of tomorrow? Business France’s Smart Cities: The Role of French Technology in Inventing the Cities of Tomorrow event explores how three leaders in smart solutions are powering the way of the future.

Stop by 1871 on May 3, 2017 to hear from and meet these three leaders, networking and a free cocktail hour.




Moderated by Ted Souder, Head of Industry-Retail at Google

With the following speakers

Mark Johnson – Smart City Chief, North America at Schneider Electric

Allen Proithis – President, North America at SigFox

Mark Costa – Chief Digital Officer, North America at JCDecaux
