Innovating with cities to create a better world.

Smart cities represent a poetic fusion of community and innovation, dancing between what's possible and what is required. At Smart Cities Connect, we bring all of it together in an event that pushes and prods and gets real about city challenges and opportunities. If you're looking to make a difference in your community, want to collaborate with others in your field, or want to share an innovative solution, join us September 26-29, 2022 in Washington D.C. for the sixth annual Smart Cities Connect Conference & Expo.

"As a smart cities practitioner, the Smart Cities Connect Conference and Expo is one of the most fruitful conferences of the year, and one that I always prioritize among the many annual conferences. The impact of being with people from every sector, learning about new technologies & applications, and meeting other local government officials who are on the same or similar journey as we are in Colorado Springs is immeasurable."

"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."
