Why attend?

The march of technology, and the interconnection of all aspects of our lives, continues at a relentless pace. As users become more acclimatised to technology improving all aspects of their lives, those of us involved with the provision of essential services within our cities need to move forward with this trend too.


The smart development and interconnection of our cities is an area of great excitement; and it provides us with the opportunity to envision what a utopian future for our cities might look like, and to step boldly into this new paradigm.


At Smart Cities, delegates hear from the industry’s leaders – those who are at the cutting edge of the new technologies. You will gain new ways of thinking about how our cities can communicate to allow the built environment and services to operate seamlessly together for the ultimate user experience.
