The 2nd National Smart Cities Summit

The Next Step – Moving from Vision to Reality

September 25th 2012, Croke Park Convention Centre, Dublin

As our planet gets more urban, our cities need to get smarter!

The majority of the world’s population now lives in cities and this number is growing fast. In fact, it is estimated that one million people move into the world’s cities each week. With this enormous influx of population, new ideas are needed to manage complexity, increase efficiency, reduce expense and improve quality of life.

It is against this backdrop that iQuest is delighted to present The 2nd National Smart Cities Summit. Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural event, this summit will examine the keys to success of our smart cities.

With an impressive gathering of leading national and international experts - and an array of modern and relevant topics - there is no doubt that this event is a ‘must attend’ for everyone with an interest in and responsibility for planning, urban development, infrastructure, transport and sustainability. Together, we will attempt to take the next step and move the concept of smart cities from vision to reality.
