Enabling Smart Citizens in the Smart Sustainable City

The Smart to Future Cities conference has gone from strength to strength over recent years, charting the transition of the smart city concept from definition to implementation. In 2014 we hosted over 250 industry experts, 80 of whom were from international city administrations.

The conference is renowned for being the right size for constructive discussion and networking where cities can talk directly to other cities. As our delegates said:

“The Smart Cities conference 2014 was an outstanding experience. Several of the conversations I had during the conference have translated into tangible projects with real outcomes.” - Future Cities Lab

“It was a great place to meet different experts and have a talk with them on very specific topics. Other conferences are too big to have such “deep face to- face” discussions about the issues and challenges we have in our city, it was really inspiring” - City of Ostrava

“Great line up of speakers and very insightful. I felt I was learning at the leading edge of Smart City thinking” - Milton Keynes Council

2015 sees the concept of Smart Cities continuing to evolve as the focus shifts to the citizen and their central place in smart city design and the drive towards efficiency and sustainability.

Meet the challenge of managing Big Data in the Smart City- utilise the cloud's rich offerings.

Establish your position in the complex smart city eco system of software, infrastructure, telco, utility, transport, healthcare and retail providers

Build the right partnerships and take advantage of the enormous revenue opportunities and OPEX savings still yet to be seized through cloud service offerings and smart city programs

Access the technology and apps best placed to enable the Smart City: WiFi, cable, FTTx, LTE, Cloud, M2M, satellite, Smart Devices, HTML and APPs , plus the right people power to make tech work!

Understand the needs of international city administrations for integrated solutions for energy, transport, retail and healthcare

During the event you can tap into Ovum’s expertise through one-to-one consultations with our analysts at the Analyst Clinic.

Here, in 30 minute meetings, you will be able to discuss the challenges facing your organization and get personalized advice on how the latest trends in business technology will affect your business and your industry sector. Ovum’s Global IT and Telecoms analyst team, experts in their respective fields, are available to meet with you. We encourage you to take advantage of this experience by securing a one-to-one meeting in advance to be sure of availability, or on the day.

It is becoming an accepted truth that no single company can own the Future city market. Equally, public sector procurement agencies are under pressure to open procurement to a wider ecosystem of vendors. Cloud enabled app stores are significantly reducing the barriers to entry for SMEs and some national governments such as the UK are imposing an SME quota for public sector ICT spend. We want to promote the best of the SME companies operating in the future city arena and will have an innovation village at the event where you can meet with the best of the SMEs working in the smart city space.

For more information on Exhibiting in the SME Innovation Village, please contact Svetlana Meshkova on +44 (0)20 3377 3993 or svetlana.meshkova@ovum.com
