for the second annual Smart Regions Conference!


The Second Annual Smart Regions Conference will bring together government, industry, and academic leaders that are working to research, plan, fund, and deploy smart and connected technologies, policies, and strategies.  A dynamic day and a half of programming will shine a light on recent success stories, active challenges, and opportunities to work together to build better places to live, work, and visit.

The Smart Regions Conference is designed for urban, suburban, and rural communities of all sizes to connect directly with trusted partners, discover and explore new ideas, identify available resources, and learn from industry experts as they navigate digital transformation efforts, many of which require regional collaborations and multi-jurisdictional cooperation. This year, the programming will include the presentations from each of the 80 project response teams from around the country that participated in the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge. Those teams are competing for more than $50 million dollars in available project financing and project support.
