Virtual Event: Smart Infrastructure Planning

Ensuring investments in smart infrastructure deliver maximum value to citizens

Wednesday, March 24, 2021
Start: 12:00pm ET / 9:00 PT

Agenda Overview:

Smart Infrastructure and the Internet of Things (IoT) hold the promise of greater safety, energy efficiency, lower levels of pollution and data-driven decision-making to drive better outcomes for municipalities. However, implementation requires more than installation; municipal leaders will need to forecast, budget, plan and consult with citizens to gain buy-in and trust.

To get there, city planners and policymakers must think about smart infrastructure on a holistic level and start planning for the future today. As recent events have shown, predicting trends, anticipating community needs and planning for the future is not as easy as it seems. Creating a large-scale infrastructure plan that can move with the times may sound like a paradox, but with the right plan and the right tools to back it up, municipal leaders can deliver on their smart goals.

Public Sector Network’s Smart Infrastructure Planning event will bring together municipal leaders to reimagine infrastructure planning. Hear what is possible for Smart Communities and discover ways that your infrastructure can adapt to changing citizen expectations. Create a plan that can be designed, developed and implemented in the least disruptive and most cost-effective way possible.
