Takeaways and Announcements from the Second Annual Smart Cincy Summit

At the Second Annual Smart Cincy Summit speakers and presenters across sectors and agencies shined a bright light on their success stories, challenges, and opportunities to collaborate to accelerate the development of smart city efforts across Cincinnati and the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Region. Local, state, and federal leaders convened with academic and business leaders to continue driving the conversation - and action - forward.

The Summit was the second annual event of its kind, and served last year to formally launch the first Regional Smart Cities Initiative in the United States. This year, the event explored ongoing activities, forthcoming projects, and available resources that can accelerate said efforts. It also acted as the 'kick-off' event for the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge where $50 million in project financing was revealed to be available for challenge winners.
