April 26th, 2018 at Union Hall in Cincinnati, OH, 930am-3pm (space limited)

 

Recent Project Highlights:

The Second Annual Smart Cincy Summit will explore the future of our city and region, and the impact that new technologies, policies, and strategies will have for people regardless of socioeconomic or physical barriers. As we deploy the foundational layer of connectivity for people, places, things, and information, we can begin to build a test bed to enable the internet of transportation, ushering in a new age of accessible and equitable mobility catalyzed by intelligent technologies and smart infrastructure planning. These efforts will bolster social mobility, enhance economic development, and lead to improved experiences for residents and visitors, alike.

Leaders from the Smart Cincy, The City of Cincinnati will host the summit, welcoming guests from the Governor’s Office, The United States Senate, The United States Congress, and many federal, state, and local agencies that will be on site to participate and contribute to the happenings.  

Speakers, panelists, and roundtable discussions will explore recent success stories such as the downtown fiber ring in the City of Cincinnati, challenges such as defeating the digital divide or optimizing crumbling infrastructure, and opportunities to collaborate via public-private-partnerships to continue moving these conversations forward. During the leadership luncheon awards will be presented to local and regional leaders, and a light will shine on the amazing progress that has been made stemming out of City Hall. Additionally, national announcements concerning the programming, funding, and financing behind the Smart Infrastructure Challenge will be released.

The summit will take place on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 beginning at 930am. Those that are able to join will also be invited to the community day and media dinner on April 25th. More details soon! Questions? Email hello@smartcincy.org.
