  Cities 4.0 Summit

22 - 23 March 2017

Creating vibrant, liveable cities takes careful planning from city leadership as well as engagement with communities, designers, technology leaders, innovators, architects, builders – everyone that creates the cities ‘ecosystem’.

Committee for Melbourne is excited to support the Cities 4.0 Summit, an event that is bringing together some of the most innovative urban thinkers from around the globe and across Australia to explore strategy, technology and design for innovative and connected smart cities.

It is where ingenious ideas are applied to urban challenges in order to improve quality of life, strengthen economies and protect the environment.

Being held from 21 – 23 March in Melbourne, the summit has been specifically designed to help leaders from all parts of the cities landscape collaborate, share ideas and learn from some of the world’s best.
