Beyond Boundaries at the Smart Regions Conference Oct 25/26
The second annual Smart Regions Conference invites guests to think BEYOND city limits, beyond bureaucratic silos, beyond party lines, and beyond all of the barriers that hinder the development of smart communities in cities and regions of all sizes.
BEYOND will be a key theme throughout the one a half day programming dedicated to helping leaders and practitioners co-create solutions that integrate new technologies, policies, and strategies to create better places to live, work, and visit. Often times this means we must have a focus on interdisciplinary, interagency, and multi-jurisdictional coordination if we are to get these things right. So, of course, we must think beyond traditional boundaries, in every sense of the word.
On Thursday, October 25th, guests will hear from morning speakers and presenters before a lineup of power panels and networking sessions. On Friday, October 26th, guests will enjoy an engaging lineup of Friday forums ahead of an awards luncheon that will close out the conference.
