City leaders need new ways of thinking about planning, designing & building our cities - putting the citizen & liveability at the heart of all future projects, developments & transformations. Every city or municipality is different, with different challenges and a different culture - for cities to become really smart they must embrace their unique context. Technology is an enabler, not the solution, the people must come first.

• Networking
Collaboration & debate create an environment for greater understanding. Meet with your peers at NSC 2020 - see how others are overcoming the same challenges & build your network of knowledge.
• Great Speakers
Listen & learn from some of the smartest cities across the globe, understand how they overcame challenges & delivered real improvement to the quality of life of their citizens.
• The Future is Now
Technology offers an opportunity to change our cities for the better. Bringing citizens, politicians & city halls together to co-create outside of the box solutions to some of our biggest challenges.
• New Content
Our promise to you is original content from all of our speakers, no repetition of previously seen presentations at ours or other events - or you get a free ticket for the next edition of NSC.
