Event description


Connected technologies are transforming cities. Through a series of lightning talks (no boring panels allowed), mayors, city technology officers and entrepreneurs will showcase what they are doing, what works, what is needed and what is to come.

You'll hear about how top tech trends - the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, autonomous vehicles, 5G, connected buildings and homes, smart grids and more are impacting the most pressing challenges for cities - mobility, affordability, energy, sustainability, access to healthcare and education, citizen engagement, the digital divide and more. Join us, meet smart city leaders from around the world, learn, share and participate in building the cities of the future.
