Connected Communities and the C's of Smart Cities
Rhonda Binda's keynote "The C's of Smart Cities" will be featured at The Smart Cincy Summit where we will talk about connectivity, community, culture, and commerce as Greater Cincinnati leaders continue to take steps at building a smart region.
When we talk about smart cities we are really talking about connecting communities... Using technology as a tool enabled by a foundational layer of smart connectivity. Join us at the Smart Cincy Summit to discuss smart city planning efforts and to explore available resources and addressable opportunity areas with elected and public officials, business and academic leaders, and community members committed to improving outcomes for residents.
The Smart Cincy Summit will take place on Tuesday, April 25th at Union Hall. Speakers, panels, roundtables and breakout sessions will see leaders and officials talk about smart city solutions looking through the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana regional lens.
