Innovative, Focused Audience Event

The Summit will be led by a world-class group of speakers. The distinguished list of contributors includes local DFW elected officials, USDOT leaders, Internet of Things (“IoT”) thought leaders, and senior officers from global technology innovators. The Summit will incorporate case-study presentations, opportunities to interact with Smart City experts, smaller group solution development break-out sessions, and academic roundtables to understand what is on the horizon. Breakfast, lunch and a closing reception are included in the registration.

Automated vehicles are already starting to travel on North Texas roads. Intelligent infrastructure is being built into the newest area buildings, highways and transit facilities. Much like the cloud trend that began to gain traction a decade ago, IoT has already started to impact our communities even before many citizens and local leaders realize they are part of this game changing trend. To deliver on the immense potential of innovative services for communities you serve, it is important to fully understand the challenges of complexity, governance, security, analytics and budgetary discipline that are part of the promise of Smart Cities.

Value for Government Decision Makers

The North Texas Smart Cities Summit is created specifically for local municipalities by providing special and attractive pricing aligned with a centralized location. The Summit audience will be large and diverse, drawing from the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) membership covering 16 counties and nearly 300-member governments in North Texas, IEEE membership, private sector representatives and academic communities focused on IoT and Smart Cities.

By the end of the day you will be able to start the process of building a Smart Cities Blueprint with answers to:

  • What are the opportunities for using Smart City technologies/business practices?
  • How do I take advantage of these opportunities and better my community?
  • How can we engage expertise to develop Smart City concepts for our community?
  • State and Federal compliance and security concerns.
  • How to fund a Smart City initiative?
  • Real world use cases from industry and municipal stakeholders.
  • Discussion opportunities with solution providers.
