10:25 - Panel discussion: How to create a strategy for a Smart City?

A recent Report found that fewer than half (47 percent) of UK cities even had an established definition for a smart city, and just 22 percent had a smart city action plan.

Although such cities as Bristol, London and Glasgow are making huge strides on smart city development, many cities lack a cohesive strategy which includes a lack of engagement with citizens. However, is salvation around the corner?

The recent Mayoral appointments by key cities in England points to a more focused approach with the potential to increase collaboration between authorities, built environment and industry. This panel discussion will provide the platform for questions with our streamed sessions dedicated to discovering the solutions available.
