This webinar is also available to stakeholders in New Zealand. SCCANZ would also like to acknowledge the webinar’s host, the Australian Smart Communities Association.

Summit: 2nd August: Advancing Smarter Cities – The Planning Imperative, Perth
While technology companies are developing smart cities tools and technologies at an accelerated pace, planning organisations and cities are still challenged to find effective ways of embracing technology and data analytics to address the public interest and respond to the community's aspirations.
