Disruptive innovation is fundamentally transforming the infrastructure landscape.
In the short-term, smart technology has been identified as a measure to preserve existing assets. In the longer-term, it is expected to improve service delivery standards and decrease the need for investment in ‘hard’ infrastructure.
Whilst many technologies that will power our future infrastructure are still emerging, disruption is increasing the pressure on our communities, cities, regions and nations to become smarter and more innovative with existing resources and assets.
Infrastructure, investment, intelligent planning and robust policies are critical to economic growth and sustaining competitiveness, on the global stage.
The Smart Infrastructure Summit will focus on the various technologies and systems that are enabling the creation of “smart infrastructure”.
The Summit will showcase the outcomes that can be achieved by combining infrastructure, innovation and technology.
It will bring together industry experts and thought leaders, national, state and local government, owners of infrastructure, construction companies, contractors, academia and solution providers to collaborate and discuss strategies to support the adoption of smart infrastructure.
The Summit mixes high-level keynotes, cross infrastructure case studies from local and global leaders and interactive roundtables moderated by experts.
