About the event:
The Smart Regions Conference brings together leaders from each level of government, across industry sectors, and throughout academic communities to explore the intersection of government, technology, nature, and humanities. The programming has a special focus on multi jurisdictional coordination as we work together using smart technologies, policies, and strategies to create better (and safer) places to live, work, and visit. In fact, many project teams from around the country will present their plans related to the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge competing for access to more than $50 million in project financing and additional support.
