Liverpool City Region has the potential to become the country’s first smart city region and is already well on its way to earning smart city status but how can we all help and make improvements?

Cities are increasingly utilising data and connected technology, as well as newly introduced 5G networks in order to bring businesses, public infrastructure and local people together. The possibilities of smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT) are endless, with innovations in healthcare, manufacturing and transport already benefiting from smart technologies.

Opportunities are developing for authorities to work together at the scale of city-regions, creating joined-up plans which cover a range of issues. To be successful, they will need to understand complex economic, social and environmental trends, build consensus between a wide range of stakeholders, and develop long-term plans in conditions of uncertainty. New tools and approaches are needed to support this wave of strategic planning, therefore we will discuss this at this exclusive event.

We will be joined by a panel of expert speakers from the University of Liverpool, Regenda, Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Mott MacDonald to discuss how people, businesses and local authorities in the Liverpool City Region can use the technology at their fingertips to create a sustainable smart city region.
