The Telegraph: Britain's Smart Cities Conference 2018

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

CW is partnering with The Telegraph to bring together an audience of 300 government officials, smart city experts, technologists and innovators at Britain's Smart Cities Conference 2018.

About the event

The only event connecting the UK’s council and private sector leaders to drive innovation in frontline services

CW is proud to work with The Telegraph to present the fourth annual Britain’s Smart Cities conference, the only UK-focused gathering bringing together 300 city budget-holders and business leaders to provide a citizen-first, digital vision for smart cities.

Highlights for 2018 include:

  • A truly collaborative environment: Encouraging city and rural council leaders to interact and share their war stories, best practice and lessons learnt

  • Pre-event benchmarking workshop: Dedicated to fostering best practice for overcoming departmental and data silos and unlocking ROI in public sector procurement

  • Post-event VIP networking reception: Designed to forge new, innovative partnerships and cement strong public sector-supplier relationship

  • Cross-departmental and regional learnings: From early-adopters using smart city approaches to private sector giants contributing to low-carbon neighbourhoods

  • Diversifying funding sources: Identifying new opportunities to monetise pilots and demonstrators in order to offset piecemeal direct financing through government allocation or international grants

  • Create a framework for age-old challenges: Establish practical steps local authorities can take to support responsible data sharing, boost citizen engagement and boost shared service ROI

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Dimitra Simeonidou, Chief Technology Officer, Bristol is Open

  • Nicola Yates OBE, Chief Executive, Future Cities Catapult

  • Glenn Woodcock, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Exeter City Futures
