The Smart Cities Conference and the Australian Smart Communities Association (ASCA) have announced their partnership for the 2020 event.
ASCA empowers liveable, sustainable, workable smart communities, with citizens, local businesses and stakeholders at the core of its activities.
Having started as a collaborative coalition of local government, Regional Development Associations (RDAs) and Regional Organisations of Councils (ROCs), ASCA has established itself as the peak industry association in Australia for the rapidly developing digital, sharing and interconnected communities.
Smart Cities is a two-day event that brings together the pillars of our cities – representatives from government and the buildings, roads, transport and utilities industries – to educate delegates on the latest developments that are improving the ways our cities, towns and suburbs operate.
The inaugural Smart Cities Conference was held in May 2019 and featured a line up of industry experts including:
- President Obama’s former Smart Cities Advisor and Executive Director of Smart Cities Lab, Mark Dowd
- Peter Colacino, Executive Director, Policy and Research at Infrastructure Australia
- Michelle Price, Chief Executive Officer at AustCyber
- Professor Mark Burry AO FTSE AIA, Founding Director of the Smart Cities Research Institute
- Dr Adam Mowlam, Manager, Smart City Office at Wyndham City Council
- Lucinda Hartley, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Neighbourlytics; and
- Vi Le, Stakeholder Engagement Manager at Standards Australia
- Among many others.
This new partnership will see the two organisations working together on next year’s event, bringing industry knowledge and experience to make the 2020 conference even bigger.
Smart Cities 2020 will run from 28-29 May in Melbourne. Speakers and the full program will be announced in the coming months.
