Internally, we refer to Smart Cities Week Silicon Valley as our “What’s Next” event. And what better place to showcase breakthrough ideas than Silicon Valley, the innovation capital of the world. Here are just a few of the technologies we’ll spotlight in our conference and on the exhibit floor:
• Autonomous vehicles
• Artificial intelligence
• Augmented reality
• Advances in cybersecurity
But don’t think that our Silicon Valley event is solely about “What’s Next.” It’s also about “How Next” — about practicalities such as financing, procurement, stakeholder engagement and program management. You’ll be learning these things from internationally recognized experts, but also from other cities who’ve gone before. No other event has as many city representatives on the program and in the audience.
And no other event has as many experienced city professionals sharing their best practices. Truly, if you want your city to be more livable — safer, cleaner, more convenient — and more workable — more competitive, more prosperous — and more sustainable — less carbon, more resilience — then you can’t afford to miss Smart Cities Week Silicon Valley.
It’s your best tool for keeping your community, your citizens and your own career at the forefront of positive change.
