"We were excited to host Smart Cities Connect; it gave us a chance to highlight some of the great successes of our departmental leaders in smartification of their teams and, perhaps more importantly, allow them to meet some of the amazing leaders in this space from other communities."

Bob Bennett, Chief Innovation Officer, City of Kansas City

"Out of many choices, I prioritize attending the Smart Cities Connect Conference each year. This conference brings together high-powered decision makers from every part of the smart city ecosystem – city leaders, vendors, academics, researchers and non-profit organizations. The atmosphere is energetic and warm which fosters open, honest conversations and new connections. I recommend this conference for everyone involved in the smart cities movement."

Ruthbea Yesner, VP, Government Insights and Smart Cities, IDC Government Insights

"The quality of attendees, speakers and exhibitors at Smart City Connect was very impressive and also very targeted for our business. It's so helpful to be together, in one place at one time, with so many of the smart city leaders from around the country."

Ian Aaron, Chief Executive Officer, Ubicquia
