The second annual Smart to Future Cities event will take place on June 11 and 12, 2013. Too many smart city conferences do not distinguish between what is possible in developed countries as opposed to emerging economies. Equally many focus on a futurist vision of what may be possible in the future and not what we can do now. This is often compounded by not giving enough emphasis on the practical roadmap to implementing a future city and how you measure success.
Over 80 international case studies from government, energy, healthcare, transport, retail and building control will define the working business models which are creating future Cities successes for citizens and enterprises alike; fully integrated, strategically-designed development programs with measurable results.
IN 2012, we heard from CxO strategic thought leaders from the European Commission, Barcelona City Council, Orange, Singtel, IBM, LivingPLanIT, Telefonica Digital, Amsterdam Innovation Motor, NHS, United Healthgroup and more. We also welcomed The UK Government, the Urban Land Institute and industry leading analysts among many others.
IN 2013, we welcome back industry leaders and introduce a comprehensive programme building on our belief that no one vertical can make this market . Therefore we will be covering all of the ICT/Telco enabler platforms and technologies that are changing our interaction with the world around us, customer interaction more efficient, cost effective and more valuable. In addition, we look at the role of other verticals such as FS, Utilities, Developers and BIM (Building Information Management) in the future city arena.
Ensure the competitiveness and collaborative potential of your community in a competitive environment, as part of the new Smart world. Join the many 1:1 discussion sessions, leading CxO keynotes and business catalyst features in this unique meeting of minds in 2013.
