As the smart cities movement spreads across the U.S., Wilson, N.C. proves that businesses and citizens in major metropolitan cities are not the only beneficiaries of gigabit technology and the innovation it fosters.

This WRAL TechWire Executive Exchange convenes city, industry, and academic leaders in the heart of downtown Wilson to share strategies and ideas powering North Carolina cities like Wilson in their journey to become even smarter and more connected.

The November 1 event begins at 8 AM and ends at 12 PM at the Edna Boykin Cultural Center.
