Harnessing international, government and industry expertise to accelerate Australia's future in smart cities and infrastructure

 

Sydney | 7-8 March 2018
 
Efficient buildings and public lighting; access to clean energy and water supplies; the ability to travel efficiently; a sense of safety and security - these are the prerequisites modern cities must fulfil to stay competitive and provide a decent quality of life for citizens. The 3rd Annual Australian Smart Cities and Infrastructure Summit delivers a programme that offers solutions to these challenges.

 

  • Hear from CTOs, smart city programme managers, urban planners and senior decision makers from government, utilities, telecommunications, transport and real estate
  • Learn from those who already live in a Smart City – benefit from the experience of the City of Boston; ask how they did it, and find the strategies that will work and can be applied to your city 
  • Discover how some cities are deploying smart energy and water systems to achieve cost and energy savings with efficient public lighting
  • Understand how smart building technologies are being used to drive operational efficiencies, reduce energy consumption and increase sustainability
  • Gain insights into the mobility needs of the future and discover how current transport planning should cater the needs of the future

 

For the first time ever, the 2018 event will be held co-located with the 2nd Annual Western Sydney Aerotropolis Summit, where Australia’s first smart airport city is being developed. The events will welcome more than 200 government, industry and international keynotes as they gather to explore progress and discuss development opportunities to deliver Australia’s first airport city and Australia’s future in smart cities.
