bee smart city and Smart Cities New York form strategic partnership

bee smart city and Smart Cities New York have entered into a strategic partnership to help cities and municipalities across the globe in seizing the opportunities that the journey towards becoming smarter offers. The development of prosperous and livable smart cities and communities is the common vision of both partnering organizations.


 To become truly smart, cities need to follow holistic and citizen-centric strategic approaches. Through their density, diversity, creativity, and economic clout, cities are increasingly asserting themselves: testing and deploying new technologies, building ‘future-proof’ infrastructure, creating innovative business models and policy frameworks, and driving social and political progress.

“Smart Cities New York explores the importance of democratizing and humanizing technologies of the future to improve the quality of life for all citizens. bee smart city and Smart Cities New York follow the same vision of human-centric and holistic smart city development. Through our partnership, we can even better promote this vision and help cities to tap into valuable knowledge and expertise to accelerate their journey towards becoming smarter”, states Aarti Tandon, Executive Director of Smart Cities New York.   

Guided by the idea that smart cities are truly ‘Powered by People’, the conference brings together thought leaders from private and public sectors, academia, and NGOs to explore the political, economic, social, and technological dimensions of urban life in the 21st century. The second global conference takes place in New York City from May 8-10, 2018.
