What 2016 delegates said

Creating smarter cities and communities 

The Telstra Australian Smart Communities Conference is the only conference run by smart communities professionals for smart communities professionals.

You'll explore how to:

  • place people first through user oriented experience
  • adjust services to meet needs and benefit the planet
  • create new profit through the delivery of community benefit, operational savings and informed capital works programs
  • build communitywide partnerships to drive new investment and employment in the digital economy.

By using smart solutions, smart communities become more efficient, increase the capability of existing infrastructure and services, and improve the quality of life for their citizens.

The conference provides the platform to showcase these smart solutions, celebrate the successes of our smart communities and share stories with members and the broader community.

International and national speakers will provide key insights that will guide delegates on what government and communities need to do to:

  • Bring about transformational change to the way communities are managed.
  • Embrace the right technologies to build robust, smart economies.
  • Focus attention on enhancing skills to take greatest advantage of digital connectivity.
  • Promote innovation and creativity to the benefit of everyone in society.
