The Smart City Business Takes Off:
Announcing “Smart City Week 2012”

Over 400 projects in action worldwide, and a market potential estimated to hit 4,000 trillion yen by 2030... Organizations around the world are getting involved in smart cities, which bear such incredible promise, and in the last year smart city projects have reached a major milestone: the transition from demonstration trials to full-scale projects. In 2013 the first results from actual projects are expected to appear.

People in the industry need to share the latest smart city information, including successful results worldwide and the latest developments. Smart City Week gathers information from around the globe, and disseminates information on activities in Japan, bringing together all the people, information and business in the smart city sector.

The first international conference last year brought 5000 people together to engage in discussion and develop the New Smart City Declaration. Today, that declaration defines directions for corporate growth.
Industry leaders from many nations will attend the second conference, this year. Take a look at the depth and breadth of the program. City development managers from many East Asian nations will participate in the newly established Asia Smart City Council, created in recognition of the importance of closer international collaboration, while the Local Government Summit is designed to facilitate communication and cooperation between Japanese local governments and corporations. Tie-ups with foreign media in America, Europe, China and Southeast Asia ensure that all the knowledge and experience of Smart City Week is made available to other lands.

What makes a city truly smart? And what business models can ensure the long-term survival of the smart city? Smart City Week is the place to be to consider these questions and find new solutions, to tell the world what you have to offer, and to discover new business opportunity.
Be a part of it.
