The Big Idea

ABOUT THE SMART LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUMMIT

Hands on, in-depth content created to enable liveable towns and cities

The need to grow and transform is vitally important to our towns and cities. To reflect this, the Cities & Regions Summit 4.0 has changed its name to the Smart Local Government Summit.

  

2020 EVENT THEME & STRUCTURE - FROM HYPE TO REALITY

We’ve done this to ensure that we cut through the “smart cities” hype and deliver our delegates and your prospective clients, content and solutions that they want.

During our recent survey of more than 30,000 local government employees, involved in all aspects of the transformation of our cities and towns, half of the respondents said that they look towards the vendor community for advice and guidance on smart city technology.

On the flip side, over 75% said it’s “moderately hard to difficult” to find relevant information that provides hard facts and figures without all the hype.

In simple terms, our delegates don’t want a “sales pitch” They want advice, they want you to share your expertise.
