US Ignite Application Summit

Date: March 27 - 29, 2018

A preliminary agenda for the US Ignite Application Summit and the co-located Smart Cities Connect Conference and Expo is now available on the Smart Cities Connect website—take a look to see all the summit has to offer this year! Just a few things on this year’s docket are:

  • Meeting face-to-face with an estimated 1,800 innovators, including forward-thinking representatives from US Ignite’s Smart Gigabit Communities network.
  • Spotlighting Kansas City, the Summit will showcase the collaboration between industry, academia and government that is the calling-card of Kansas City, a US Ignite Smart Gigabit Community and the first IEEE Smart Cities Initiative Core City in North America.
  • Welcoming US Ignite’s newest Smart Gigabit Communities, including Eugene-Springfield, Oregon; Lexington; Kentucky; Lincoln, Nebraska; Red Wing, Minnesota; and San Francisco Bay Area, California.
  • Collaborating with Smart Gigabit Communities, including NC Next Generation Network, and exploring the ways we’ve seen advanced networking technologies help build the foundation for smart communities. 
  • Experiencing first-hand learning about the economic development activity seen in smart communities, including Smart City Chattanooga, one of the New York Times 52 Places to Go in 2018—thanks in part to a metro-wide fiber network.
