From Vision to Reality in Developed Markets
Smart Cities are Evolving and Growing.
OVUM and INFORMA TELECOMS & MEDIA are joining forces in 2013 to bring you a next generation FutureCities event.
Too many smart city conferences do not distinguish between what is possible in developed countries as opposed to emerging economies. Equally many focus on a futurist vision of what may be possible in the future and not what we can do now. This is often compounded by not giving enough emphasis on the practical roadmap to implementing a future city and how you measure success. We aim to fill those gaps.
Over 80 international case studies from government, energy, healthcare, transport, retail and building control will define the working business models which are creating future Cities successes for citizens and enterprises alike; fully integrated, strategically-designed development programs with measurable results.
IN 2012, we heard from CxO strategic thought leaders from the European Commission, Barcelona City Council, Orange, Singtel, IBM, LivingPLanIT, Telefonica Digital, Amsterdam Innovation Motor, NHS, United Healthgroup and more. We also welcomed The UK Government, the Urban Land Institute and industry leading analysts among many others.
IN 2013, we welcome back industry leaders and introduce a comprehensive programme building on our belief that no one vertical can make this market . Therefore we will be covering all of the ICT/Telco enabler platforms and technologies that are changing our interaction with the world around us, customer interaction more efficient, cost effective and more valuable. In addition, we look at the role of other verticals such as FS, Utilities, Developers and BIM (Building Information Management) in the future city arena.
Ensure the competitiveness and collaborative potential of your community in a competitive environment, as part of
the new Smart world. Join the many 1:1 discussion sessions, leading CxO keynotes and business catalyst features in this unique meeting of minds in 2013.
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 and 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 George Shaw on +44 (0)20 7733 3191 or firstname.lastname@example.org
