Smart Innovations for Future Cities

1 November 2017, The Ritz Carlton Almaty


IDC Smart City Forum 2017 will bring together over 300 attendees from government and business organizations for peer-to-peer networking and generation of new ideas for future cities’ development.

Many cities around the world have already joined the race for material, technological, and human capital. The most advanced urban centers today seek to provide their citizens with a well-developed infrastructure, an attractive landscape, a healthy environment, a high level of security, and, above all, innovative solutions for the development of an urban economy.

IDC Smart City Forum 2017 will feature best practices used in creating Smart Cities around the world, from Singapore to New York, presented by IDC analysts from the global Smart Cities team. Over the past five years, the team has studied more than 500 cities that implemented Smart City projects, and has developed a unique Smart Cities Maturity Assessment, which is already used widely by many cities and even countries across the globe.

In Kazakhstan, Smart City technologies are already being adopted in Astana, Almaty, and Shymkent. Their successful use cases, plans for the future, and examples of best practices will be included among key themes at the IDC Smart City Forum 2017.
