Futureproofing Cities

With cities set to receive close to $1T for roads, bridges, transit, rail, electric vehicle charging stations, power grids, waste and water infrastructure, electric transit buses, traffic management, and broadband, and the country at a true inflection point around equity, race, and justice, the future of work, health, housing, climate change, education, AI, security, urban planning, and ESG investments, we are working with our mission-driven global community of government officials, corporate partners, NGOs, and entrepreneurs to equitably futureproof our cities.


Events and Advisory

Through year-long thought leadership, a carefully-curated advisory council, and high-profile B2B events, our global community is driving the equitable and resilient transformation of cities through public private partnerships and innovative financing models.

From the historic disparities exacerbated by COVID-19 to the global rallying cry for justice, this extraordinary moment has amplified the significant role Smart City Expo Atlanta is playing in shaping a shared future of safety, prosperity, equity, and opportunity for all. We are proud that 70% of our speakers in 2019 were people of color, women, or persons with disabilities – inclusion is ingrained in our DNA.

Technology is empowering local leaders to reimagine what’s possible in their communities. However, smart city solutions will only reach their full potential if they’re deployed in a way that is both equitable and transparent. Smart City Expo Atlanta brings together elected officials, thought leaders and technologists to do just that. Clarence Anthony CEO
