2016 Smart Communities Summit
Some of the sharpest civic leaders and technology experts from Australia and overseas will converge on the Sunshine Coast from Wednesday, March 2 for the inaugural 2016 Smart Communities Summit.
Sunshine Coast Council CEO Michael Whittaker said the three-day summit at The Events Centre at Caloundra would provide the first opportunity within Australia for national and international leaders to reveal the amazing technologies that will be part and parcel of our cities and communities in the near future.
“The theme of this summit is ‘Unlocking the Smart City Code’ and discovering some of the incredible new technologies that are being developed to make our cities more liveable, workable and sustainable in the future,” Mr Whittaker said.
“We’re going to find out exactly how new technologies can and are being integrated into cities and communities to support growth, encourage new investment, improve everyday access to information and services.
“The summit will include keynote speakers from Germany, the United States and across Australia who work for leading technology, telecommunications and infrastructure providers as well as universities and local government imparting their knowledge.”
