This interactive workshop will provide an in-depth, behind-the-scenes understanding of the entire Kansas City Smart and Connected City project from original concept, through the dynamic evolution of a successful public-private partnership (P3) to the official Phase 1 launch.
An insightful discussion led by key city stakeholders, thought leaders and the companies involved will thoroughly explain the critical components that were necessary to justify a P3 investment, ensure broad social impact and deliver measurable results while making sure citizens were engaged at the right level.
Throughout the day, specific lessons learned (and the mistakes to avoid) will be shared, leading up to a live planning session where each participant will create a custom return on investment model to be used as a starting point to create their own smart city project.
Experts will be on hand to answer specific questions throughout the day and participants will leave with an in-depth understanding of how Kansas City became one of the world’s largest smart and connected cities and the opportunities the future holds because of it.
It is recommended that participants have familiarity with basic smart city concepts prior to the workshop. Participants will be expected to participate in the interactive planning portion to design their own custom triple ROI scorecard.
This workshop is designed for public sector executives, community leaders, CIO’s, CTO’s, CFO’s and CXO’s that are actively considering smart city initiatives in their community and want to learn from Kansas City’s experience.
