The Lower Mainland Local Government Association and CivicInfo BC are please to announce CivX 2018: Smart Communities, Smart Region, an exciting one-day symposium on April 12, 2018, at the SFU Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver.
While there is no single definition for “smart city”, a common and simple one is this: “A smart city uses technology and data to improve livability and opportunities for the city and its people.” 
At CivX 2018, our expert speakers will share their insights into what makes a community smart, and delegates will hear fascinating stories about municipalities that are embracing new technologies and new ways of delivering services. Topics include but may not be limited to: how to leverage the internet of things, local government applications for augmented reality, the promise of machine learning and artificial intelligence, and predictive modelling in service delivery.  
Whether you’re an elected official or a professional public servant, this is an event you will not want to miss!
