Examining the development of smart cities technology in the UK, this conference takes place in the context of the recently published Digital Strategy to foster digital innovation and connectivity throughout the UK, including the formation of a Business Connectivity Forum and a £1bn programme to accelerate the development and uptake of next generation digital infrastructure.

 

With towns and cities continuing to increase their smart capabilities to make urban living more efficient and cost effective, to support environmental sustainability, delegates will assess the way forward for addressing key barriers to growth in areas such as digital infrastructure, skills and access to finance.

 

Delegates will also discuss key issues for the sectors and businesses involved in developing smart cities in the UK industry, looking at prospects for exports and international competiveness, and priorities for the Brexit negotiations.
