ITAC Smart Cities Technologies Summit

Tuesday, December 4 - 2018
All Day
Brampton

On December 4, 2018, the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC), together with the City of Brampton, will host a full-day event looking at technology for smart cities and will explore ICT applications to help cities and municipalities develop their own innovative applications to best serve their citizens’ needs.

Over the last half century, two trends have re-shaped Canada’s development.  First, there has been an accelerating move of Canadians to big cities.  The second has been the expansion of connected technologies into virtually every area of our lives.   We now use connected devices to work, shop, date, stay connected with family and engage in our communities.

The Smart Cities Technologies Summit will be a collaborative discussion to engage government at all levels with a broad section of the technology sector.

DATE:              Tuesday, December 4, 2018
TIME:               8:30 am – 4:30 pm

LOCATION:      Rose Theatre, 1 Theatre Lane, Brampton
