Earlier this year, in September, I was lucky enough to have my third visit to the City of Yinchuan in China, for the TM Forum Smart City InFocus conference. The three-day event brought together over 800 C-level executives and government officials from all over the world.
My colleague, Annie Turner, and I wrote up a report from the event, summarising every presentation (over 40). Attending the event and creating the report were a great way to get an overview of some of the smart city initiatives going on around the world, especially in China. I hope reading it will be too. Cities spotlighted include Moscow, San Diego, Los Angeles, Groningen, Yinchuan, Barcelona and many more.
Visiting China has also provided a brilliant opportunity to see a part of the world I might not otherwise have been able to, including visiting the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army. I hope to return to visit more places in the future!
If you have an event and would like to capture the takeaways, get in touch about how I can help.
