North America's Must-Attend Smart City Conference



Let’s do something extraordinary…
And let’s get started at Smart Cities Week 2017

Today we have the opportunity to create more advantages for our citizens, our cities and towns, our business and industry – and along the way, our planet.

We can do all of that with smart infrastructure.

Smart infrastructure is the foundation for future success, for better paying jobs and for a new era of prosperity for all. It is also the theme of our third annual Smart Cities Week® in Washington, D.C.

Join the conversation Oct. 3-5 as we bring together visionary leaders and thinkers from all levels of government to see, hear and be inspired by real-world examples of smart infrastructure solving tough urban challenges.

I’m convinced extraordinary things can happen when leaders meet, so I do hope to see you in October.
