WHY IMPACT>CITIES?


The economic stakes are unparalleled. Investment in the smart technologies revolutionising mobility, energy, buildings and infrastructure will give birth to a multi-trillion-dollar market in under a decade.  

The outcomes are profound. Smart technologies will transform the quality of life for urban citizens and the operational success of enterprises; making their experiences Mobile & Frictionless, Healthier & Sustainable, Connected & Seamless.

Add to this combustible mix, a growing appetite for public private infrastructure investment, a fervent interest from VCs and a pack of agile start-ups enabling a new generation of smart services; the ecosystem is set to explode.

But until now no event has managed to bring all these elements together. That's why we created IMPACT>CITIES. 

Our mission is to unite cities, enterprise, investment and tech in a brand-new type of Smart City Conference. It's where the business of smart cities gets done.
