"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."
