Smart Cities and their Effect on Facility Management
About this session:
A smart city is not a marketing campaign, a slick sales technique nor an amusing political catch phrase. It is a series of solutions to a serious and urgent situation the world faces today. Smart cities are emerging as a civic action due to a “perfect storm” of the convergence of market conditions, technology innovation, social wants and government needs, and the migration to urban environments that has accelerated on a global scale that dwarfs any previous mass movement of people in history. Join us for an exploration of how Smart Cities effect Facility Management.
