Media Advisory - Let's Talk Smart Cities

Today's Cincinnati Edition Spotlights Smart Cincy Summit

Summit Organizer Zach Huhn, Northern Kentucky Innovation Network Casey Barach join WVXU's Mark Heyne to talk smart cities

With the Smart Cincy Summit a week away, smart cities are the talk of the town in the Queen City. Cincinnati's administration has made its intention to transform the city with smart city technology clear. The launch of its Cincy Insights website last year demonstrated its commitment to data-driven smart planning. More recently, the city issued an RFQ for phase one of its Smart Cincy initiative, the first step toward affordable, citywide WiFi. 

But the problem with smart planning is scope. Zack Huhn, CEO of the Smart Cincy Summit's presenting sponsor, Venture Smarter, and Casey Barach, Director of the Northern Kentucky Innovation Netowrk, will discuss smart cities and the importance of a regional approach to smart planning with Cincinnati Edition's Mark Heyne today at 1 p.m. 

WHAT: Cincinnati Edition on WVXU 91.7 FM
WHO: Venture Smarter CEO Zack Huhn, Northern Kentucky Innovation Network Director Casey Barach
WHEN: Today, April 18, 1 p.m. 
WHY: To discuss smart cities and the Smart Cincy Summit on Tuesday, April 25.
