Smart Cities

Smart Cities is an annual conference hosted by Infrastructure Magazine. The event highlights the tools, technologies and people working to make our cities smarter, more efficient, better places to live. Hear from industry leaders, connect with colleagues and gain new ways of thinking about the cities of the future.

Truly smart cities have an established plan for what they want to achieve; and they use technology as the enabler for the changes they want to effect, rather than the reason for change itself. The smart city conversation has moved beyond the metropolis, and now relates to suburbs, neighbourhoods and towns as much as our biggest cities. We now understand that there’s as much work to be done at the micro level, as well as the macro level. Smart cities are moving their focus towards the wellbeing of community members as their key performance indicator, and are working to create functional environments that provide benefits for every citizen.
