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 it’s name to the Smart Local Government Summit. We’ve done this to ensure that we cut through the “smart cities” hype and deliver you realworld case studies that will help you on your transformation journey.
Welcome to the 4th Annual Smart Local Government Summit 2020.
With more than 60% of Australia’s local government leaders either thinking about planning a smart project or have picked one that is yet to start, the Smart Local Government Summit is perfectly placed to help you network with, and learn from your peers from across Australia who are in the same position as you.
Having surveyed over 30,000 people involved in transforming our towns, cities and regions into smart, vibrant liveable and economically stable communities, we’ve uncovered what’s important to you and your citizens. With that information, we’re curating content, inviting speakers and creating learning opportunities that will enable you to kick-start your own projects and ensure success.
We’ve listened to you. We know that you want case studies that provide you with facts, figures and results. We know that while the big picture strategic stuff is interesting, it doesn’t help you with your day to day challenges. We know that for our cities and towns the content has to more hands on and with hard facts rather than fluff. We also know that more than 75% of you find it hard to cut through the hype to find information that delivers. Finally, we also know that it’s your peers that you turn to the most for help, but connecting with them can be difficult. Lets get together and make this happen.
This is your conference, it’s for our towns and cities, it’s an opportunity to gather the best information available (without the hype) from your peers from across the country.
Our speaker line-up features world leading smart city authorities and urban futurists, as well as some of Australia’s most progressive city & regional leaders, academics and business innovators.
The Smart Local Government Summit is designed to maximise networking and relationship development. From the break-out sessions and roundtables, to the showcase viewing, site visits, dinner and drinks functions, this is your opportunity to meet and influence key people.
