250 governments already signed up - are you attending SRC18?
The Second Annual Smart Regions Conference will bring together leaders from all levels of government and across industry sectors to accelerate the development of smart cities, regions, and industries.
Of those already expected to attend, representatives from more than 98 municipalities, 37 counties, 40 state agencies, 35 regional governments, 10 federal agencies, and dozens of economic development districts will collide with leaders from top technology companies, research institutions, and non-governmental organizations.
Attendees will connect with and hear from leaders that are actively working to research, plan, fund, and deploy smart technologies, strategies, and policies to create better places to live, work, and visit. Teams from the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge will deliver Shark Tank-style pitch presentations, industry experts will provide Ted-style talks, and powerful panels will dive into success stories, challenges, and opportunities to collaborate across a targeted list of focus areas (more info here.)
The Smart Regions Conference is the largest event in North America focused on building smart cities and regions with a focus on multi-jurisdictional coordination and resilient planning. The event will dig into best practices and standards, public-private-partnerships in the new age of digital transformation, and innovative ideas to ensure smart city solutions create new opportunities for all people, regardless of socioeconomic or physical barriers.
