Smart city techies will arrive in Cincinnati this week to learn about smart mobility and infrastructure projects taking hold across the greater Cincinnati-Kentucky-Indiana region.
The second annual Smart Cincy Summit opens Thursday, April 26 in Cincinnati, and is set to attract about 250 state and local leaders, as well as industry types to the city. The day before, the Smart Cincy Community Day is set to attract about 200 attendees, say event organizers.
“Smart Cincy is committed to making sure the community drives the conversation. That’s why tickets aren’t hundreds of dollars to attend the summit. That’s why Community Day, as well as monthly roundtable events, are free,” said Jamie Sordo, marketing manager for Venture Smarter, a smart cities strategic planning and technology firm based in Cincinnati, and one of the organizers behind the Smart Cincy Summit.
