Taking place at The Crystal, the event will bring together over 200 senior thought leaders and decision makers, providing a unique opportunity to network with major city leaders and business figures from across the UK and internationally.

This year’s conference will focus on the increasingly important need for collaboration in the digital age.

  • Does there need to be a national smart city approach?
  • Digital transformation to help improve digital city planning
  • Data analytics and creating services based on meaningful insights
  • Collaboration of ecosystems and creating the smart city
  • Resilience and safety through smart city business models

As well as senior government and business keynotes, sessions will be practical, providing case studies of successful urban projects and uncovering the challenges and lessons learnt by city leaders and their partnership ecosystems.

With 30 industry-leading speakers, roundtable discussions, interviews, interactive sessions and the opportunity to quiz the experts on key topics, the conference promises delegates an engaging and informative day.
