With large scale projects underway and bold proposals for the future of urban living being debated, Toronto is at the centre of a global conversation about smart cities ecosystems. The Toronto Region Board of Trade's Elevate Smart Cities Summit 4.0 on Wednesday, September 25 will be a recognition of this moment and the critical importance of getting it right. The goals of the Summit are to showcase smart city projects already taking place and find ways to unlock long term opportunities to achieve commercialization and deployment of smart cities technologies that will enable better socio-economic outcomes.

The Smart Cities Summit 4.0 is being hosted by the Board of Trade as part of Elevate Tech Fest.

The Japan Society facilitated a keynote speaker for this Summit and the Board of Trade is kindly extending an invitation to the Members to participate in a portion of the Summit.
