Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum

Published on: 11th August 2016
At this moment you are living in a world with an estimated population of 7.4 billion people. However, many scientists believe the Earth could sustainably support only about 10 billion people. How do you see yourself within the basic arithmetic of the world population?
Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum
Get insights from experts on visions for a sustainable and viable future at the Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum happening on the 27th until 28th September 2016. Organized by Fleming, this two-day event is set to bring together experts of the Smart City industry from across the globe on one platform.

This forum will present proven strategies, cutting-edge technologies and real-world solutions for innovators who need to envision and realize the Smart Cities concept. Stakeholders will have an opportunity to see, hear and experience the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies that are already helping cities around the world become more compassionate, connected and sustainable.

4 reasons why you should be excited to attend this forum: 

1. Access new ideas and inspiration

Receive exciting perspectives and insights from Amsterdam Smart City Senior Strategy Advisor Frans-Anton Vermast; New Zealand Transport Agency Advisor Darren Baars; Barcelona City Council Chief Architect, Vicente Guallart and more. Don't miss the exciting opportunities to hear from these renowned national experts and return home with valuable takeaways to apply to your workplace.

2. Build your network with peers

This Forum provides a perfect opportunity to network and meet with fellow smart city-active and engaged professionals. Often competitors from other regions of the country can become valuable resources for referrals and best practices. Avoiding peers for fear of others discovering your competitive advantage can actually limit your own success. Collaboration is the way to approach networking. While there are those whose intentions can be suspect, most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level.

3. Sharpen your skills

There is an abundance of online resources to help you gain extra knowledge in a certain subject. But at this forum, sessions will be diving into much greater, relevant detail. The event also includes break-out sessions and case studies that will allow you to put ideas to the test.

 4. Have fun

Being in business should be rewarding and fun. All work and no play can get old fast. The Asia Pacific Smart Cities conference adds a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing a social aspect into your learning and industry branding efforts. Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people!
