"We were excited to host Smart Cities Connect; it gave us a chance to highlight some of the great successes of our departmental leaders in smartification of their teams and, perhaps more importantly, allow them to meet some of the amazing leaders in this space from other communities."

Bob Bennett, Chief Innovation Officer, City of Kansas City

"Out of many choices, I prioritize attending the Smart Cities Connect Conference each year. This conference brings together 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 new connections. I recommend this conference for everyone involved in the smart cities movement."
