"Have you ever hosted a party where everyone had fun, but you as the host had the most fun? That's what is was like for Denver to host Smart Cities Connect. We already knew what a critical role this conference plays in helping cities traverse the challenges of the rapidly-growing, rapidly-changing field of smart city technologies. To be in on the conference from initial concept to final delivery, in our own "living room" (the Colorado Convention Center), was exceptional. Smart Cities Connect is welcome to come back for an encore any time!"

Jerry Tinianow,strong Chief Sustainability Officer , City and County of Denver

"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."
