Innovating with cities to create a better world.

In our sixth consecutive year, Smart Cities Connect maintains its commitment to city-first programming that inspires real conversation, meaningful connection, and approachable action in local communities. This year, we turn special focus to the recently passed Infrastructure Law, which promises $1.7T+ in funding for local communities. Join us September 26-29, 2022 in Washington, D.C. to join the conversation.

"As a three time attendee and most recently a panelist at Smart Cities Connect, I have always come away with exciting new information and unexpected new connections. I have also appreciated the opportunities to reconnect with folks I haven't seen in person since the last SCC! I have learned to just be open to serendipity while also being focused on areas of interest and have found great value in both"

Anna Bunce, City of Centennial, CO

"Smart Cities Connect is one of the top conferences for bringing together thought leaders from public and private sectors, academia, and non-profit to talk about crucial issues facing our communities. The conference offers high caliber content and the opportunity to interact with experts, colleagues, and peers to discuss the issues that are impacting us. A great venue for learning how to tackle today's challenges while preparing to meet tomorrow's head on."

Mike Grigsby, City of Sioux Falls, SD

"The way your team seamlessly integrated industry and government leaders into thought-provoking discussions reminded me of how critical it is to align behind a shared vision of community success. I was lucky enough to engage with industry and government colleagues from Ohio to Texas, and anywhere in between. Topics on IIJA, broadband, and IoT/AI applied to smart cities brought unique and new perspectives."

Dylan Tally, McKinsey & Company
