Smart Cities Week is A Global Community for Cities to Collaborate & Discover

Smart Cities Week is a global portfolio of smart cities events, convening leaders from cities, municipalities, states, and countries from around the world, together with solution providers, to architect the next generation of smart cities.

Created by the Smart Cities Council, the world’s foremost authority on smart cities.

Why Smart Cities Week: San Diego?

The East Coast’s gathering of smart cities changemakers is back in San Diego in 2020, with innovative programming created for city leaders who want to create more livable, workable, and sustainable communities. If you prefer people talking with you—not at you—make plans for Smart Cities Week: San Diego.

You’ll network with peers and smart cities experts, uncover solutions to common challenges, be among the first to see new technologies and approaches from solution providers, and tour some of the San Diego region’s smart infrastructure projects that are delivering meaningful results. Don’t miss Smart Cities Week: San Diego.

Once again, Smart Cities Week exceeded my expectations. There were numerous opportunities for substantive engagement and discussion with thought leaders and do-ers in the Smart Cities space, excellent panels and presentations, and an excellent venue. Keep up the good work Smart Cities Council!
