Last month, the Smart Cities New York conference at Pier 36 welcomed 1,300 people for two days of panel discussions, keynote speeches and seminars on a host of issues facing cities as they look to get smarter.
From broadband internet and blockchain to affordable housing and closing the educational achievement gap, speakers covered a wide gamut of areas where city leaders are looking to innovate and improve their citizens’ lives.
With speakers including New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Iceland President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, there was plenty of star power on hand to share best practices with city leaders, private companies and other stakeholders.
