Today’s city planners face a host of challenges: inefficient transport services, outdated water and waste networks, rising pollution levels and an increased demand for energy. In an increasingly urbanised world, creating intelligent cities is essential.

With two days of jam-packed content, SMART CITIES 2012 will discuss the most pressing issues currently facing our cities – improving public safety, easing congestion, maximising energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact.

Bringing together city officials, utilities, transport operators, developers, investors, contractors and solution providers, SMART CITIES 2012 will show you how to utilise cutting-edge technologies, integrated urban planning approaches and sustainable methodologies to transform urban spaces into better places to live.

It is our mission to find the most passionate, engaging and relevant leaders in the urban planning field: those who have compelling stories to tell and love sharing what they’ve learned with others. We are still in the process of recruiting top speakers for the upcoming event – those below represent a selection of the world-class speakers working with us on our events worldwide – and will add to our already impressive list of presenters in the upcoming weeks.
