The program will highlight success stories, industry challenges, and opportunities to collaborate looking through the lens of public-private partnerships. Event attendees are working on initiatives that will help build smart cities and regions rooted in resilience and interoperability. This year, we’ve extended the program a half day to feature a series of ‘Friday Forums’ including mayors, regional leaders, research and innovation groups, and more. Also, in partnership with the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge, teams from across the nation will pitch their project ideas ‘shark tank-style’ competing for support, resources, and access to $50 million in project financing.
