It is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will live in urban areas. The global smart cities market is expected to reach USD 237.6 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 18.9% from 2019. Furthermore, nearly all global population growth through 2030 will be absorbed by cities -- about 1.1 billion new urbanites over the next 10 years.
New insights and solutions are urgently needed in order to manage the scarce resources that will be impacted by this trend, as well as operate new and regenerated urban spaces. New generations of sensor networks, Big Data analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications are being deployed in public and privately managed physical spaces to meet these requirements, though many challenges remain. As they prepare to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, municipal governments around the world are looking to the future and formulating their Smart City strategies. Now is the time to engage and learn from industry peers at the forefront of this key trend.
The 5th Annual Smart Cities International Virtual Symposium, February 23-24, 2021 brings together thought leaders and practitioners from around the world to explore the most recent technology advances, business models, and lessons learned to date in making the Smart City a reality. Expert speakers will examine the experiences of municipal governments who are pushing the envelope and moving toward actual implementation of the Smart City vision. The emphasis is on implementation strategy, case studies, best practices, and the development of compelling business models for transitioning to the 21st Century Smart City.
