Connexin Live 2018 – Building Smarter Cities

The first ever Connexin Live – Building Smarter Cities event will take place at the new Bonus Arena in Hull from 4pm on Thursday 4th October 2018.

Set to become one of the UK’s premier smart technology events, it will examine the importance of ‘Smarter City Operations’, ‘Smart in Health’, and ‘Smart in Education’.

The event will also explore the following topics:

  •  Beyond the technology – how can smart cities improve quality of life for people and businesses?
  •  Overcoming barriers – what’s holding back our cities from becoming smarter and how we can overcome these?
  •  Working together – how can we work together to deliver smarter, connected communities?

This exclusive event will bring together experts from leading businesses, local government, universities and development organisations to make connections, explore synergies and learn from one another.

Keynote speakers will include Arvind Satyam, Global Managing Director Smart Cities at Cisco, Furqan Alamgir, CEO & Founder at Connexin as well as representatives from Hull City Council, Newcastle City Council, Northern Powerhouse and Future Cities Catapult.

The emphasis will be on smart technologies such as LoRaWAN and Internet of Things applied in the real world. Expert speakers will use demonstrations and case studies to show how smart technologies are boosting local economies and enhancing lives.

Furqan Alamgir, CEO & Founder, Connexin says:

“We are thrilled to be hosting our inaugural smart cities event in Hull, showcasing the amazing opportunities smart technologies bring, opening up possibilities that haven’t even been imagined yet.

“In fact, there has never been a more exciting time to be part of the smart city journey. The time to embrace and harness this technology is now.

“Smart cities are no longer merely the stuff of science fiction – our cities are evolving before our very eyes.”

The event will also include round table and panel discussions as well as networking opportunities. Places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You can reserve your tickets on the #ConnexinLive Eventbrite page.

    I heard the interview on Humberside Radio this morning and unfortunately cannot make the event this evening. It is very interesting and shows how Hull is becoming (striving to become) a modern city with great investment/future opportunities (especially following on from the City of Culture). Would really like to find out more about what you are doing. Smart cities and Smart homes relate very much to our area of business as we have a strong connection with Smart Metering as a ZigBee Alliance certified test house.
