National Harbor, Maryland, October 7 - 8:30am – 5:00pm
The US Ignite Forum on Smart City Resiliency will take place in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. on October 7th, and will cover select challenges posed by climate change, urban development, and the threat of cyberattack on municipal governments. Join us to learn how cities are creating frameworks to address priority issues, and applying new governance practices, data analysis, and sensor-driven technologies to combat these challenges.
The format for the day is a mix of presentations and interactive discussion. Five to six cities will showcase their strategies for resilience with a focus on lessons learned from previous system shocks, and new solutions for protecting assets and ensuring livability.
Attendees, including additional city leaders as well as a limited number of corporate and association partners, will actively participate in question-and-answer sessions and facilitated conversation. Forum workshops are deliberately sized to ensure detailed information exchange, and to give participants a chance to meet and network with local government leaders and industry solution providers individually over the course of the day.
In the months following the Smart City Resiliency event, US Ignite will produce a playbook with insights from the day's discussions. A library of playbooks from previous workshops can be found on our website.
Registration is free, but limited to municipal leaders and representatives from our partner companies. Please contact Mari Silbey for more information.
