The Smart Regions Conference will educate and align key stakeholders around available resources and addressable opportunity areas in our cities and regions. We will announce a collaborative framework for regional planning and establish Smart City Development Goals for municipal leaders.
We should call it the IoT playground... The internet of everything will be on display from autonomous vehicles and commercial drones to advanced robotics and sensor technology as enthusiasts gather to touch, feel, play with and learn about IoT and emerging innovations in our smart cities.
Located just minutes outside of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University's state-of-the-art BB&T Arena is the region's premier, multi-purpose facility designed specifically for hosting sporting events, large celebrations, regional events & competitions, training camps, conventions, concerts, shows and so much more.
We are excited to host local, regional, and national media outlets to cover the Smart Regions Conference, IoT Showcase, and Smart City Workshops. We will host media and special guests for dinner the evening before the main event as a special welcome and thank you.
