Roaring on the success of the first edition in August 2014, FIRST SM@RT CITIES COUNCIL promoted by ASAPP Media Information Group is organizing the 2nd Edition Smart Cities Summit-2015 on 17 - 18 February 2015 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
Cities contribute to 70% of our GDP and house 30% of the country's population on just 3% of the land. With heavy urban migration expected in the next couple of decades the pressure on urban infrastructure is going to be intense. Government's vision of building 100 smart cities that cope with the inherent challenges of urban living and also become magnets for investment to catalyze the local economies is timely and significant.
In 2014 we discussed the concept of smart cities and evaluated the move of smart cities into the mainstream. The theme of the 2nd SM@RT CITIES SUMMIT is 'Smart Cities: From Concept to Reality'.
- 2nd SM@RT CITIES SUMMIT will provide key insights needed to meet smart business objectives. The event provides an opportunity and encourages different industries to integrate and work together, creating an assimilated infrastructure of various technologies and expertise that make cities smart.
- 2nd SM@RT CITIES SUMMIT 2015 strives at bringing together all government and private captains to deliberate on the opportunities, challenges and solutions in developing smart, sustainable, livable and efficient cities in India.
