"Cities with engaged citizens are the world’s best hope. United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 11, which targets making cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable, puts cities right at the heart of global efforts."
Aarti Tandon, Executive Director
Guided by the idea that smart cities are truly ‘Powered by People’, the smart city conference brings together thought leaders from private and public sectors, academia, and NGOs to explore the political, economic, social, and technological dimensions of urban life in the 21st century. The second global conference takes place in New York City from May 8-10, 2018.
Through their density, diversity, creativity, and economic clout, cities are increasingly asserting themselves:
testing and deploying new technologies, building ‘futureproof’ infrastructure, creating innovative business
models and policy frameworks, and driving social and political progress. In an age characterized by mass
urbanization, Smart Cities New York serves as North America’s premier forum for discussions about these
transformations in an industry expected to grow to $1.6 trillion in the next three years.
“Cities with engaged citizens are the world’s best hope. United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 11,
which targets making cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable, puts cities right at the heart of global
efforts”, states Aarti Tandon, Executive Director of Smart Cities New York.
