With support from Siemens, Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Centre for Cities, ICF, and UK partner for the event, NextGen, are looking forward to welcoming mayors, civic leaders, CIOs, planners, economic developers and industry representatives from around the world to Siemen’s Crystal in London from 4 to 6 June 2018. To learn more about the event and how to Register effective Tuesday, Dec 19, see the ICF Website:

ICF, based in New York City, studies and promotes best practice of the world’s Intelligent Communities as they seize the opportunities enabled by ICT to help build sustainable prosperous economies and enrich local cultures. The annual ICF Summit is where, regions, cities, towns and rural communities gather to study the framework that leaders from around the world describe as a cornerstone for economic development and for future proofing the place we call “Home”. It is also where the top intelligent community of 2018 will be awarded taking over from this year’s title-holder Melbourne. For 3 days next June the experiences and insights of the world’s top performing communities and their developers will be onstage with plenty of opportunities for networking amongst hundreds of delegates seeking greater economic and societal wellbeing in this fast-changing world. The annual ICF Summit is unlike any municipal, urban planning or economic development conference. You will take away value that translates into direct benefit to the citizens, businesses and institutions you serve.
