Out of the many conference choices for Smart Cities, I prioritize attending the Smart Cities Connect conference each year. This conference brings together all the high-powered decision makers from every part of the Smart City ecosystem – city leaders, vendors, academics, researchers and non-profit organizations. The atmosphere is energetic and warm which fosters open, honest conversations and making new connections. I recommend this conference for everyone involved in the Smart Cities movement.
