Virtual Event: Architecting the Future Smart City

New Zealand

Creating the modern city framework that delivers outcomes that matter

Wednesday, 4 August 2021
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM NZST

Agenda Overview

Technology is the spearhead of smart city planning, but the smart city ecosystem as a whole can only find a firm foundation by building upon its many multifarious layers. Each layer provides a diverse but equally important contribution. No one tier of demand and response is more relevant than another.

Establishing the right smart city ecosystem is essential, and a new generation of community and technology leaders, managers and solution providers is needed to effectively navigate the intersect between technology, innovation, business, operations, strategy and people.

Join the complimentary Architecting the Future Smart City virtual event and explore how to think progressively about the way their city works, while continuing to seek out and adapt to the changing needs of their citizens, evolving technologies, policies, rules and regulations.
