SMART CITYTECH PANEL DISCUSSION: “The Global Rush to Invest in the Future of Smart ∞“
Friday 25 November at 5:00 – 6:00 pm (HKT/SGT), 10:00 – 11:00 am (CET)
Cities are facing a myriad of challenges – and Smart City is the winning solution in the eyes of most city governments. A successful Smart City is defined by how well-integrated its people, infrastructure, and governance are, resulting in better living standards, diversity and environment. This panel discussion is expected to answer questions such as: What’s the future of Smart Cities? What kind of disruptive technologies will impact cities? What are the investment opportunities? Where is China at the forefront, and where is it lagging behind?

SMART ENERGY: “Net-Zero Power Pioneers in Greater Bay Area”
Monday 21 November at 5:00 – 6:00 pm (HKT/SGT), 10:00 – 11:00 am (CET)
This is a critical time in history to reduce energy consumption and search for renewable energy. Research has shown that electricity generation contributes up to 31% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, as the urban population increases, energy demand has also increased exponentially. Therefore, it is pertinent for us to find a “smarter” way to reduce energy consumption, improve efficiency and shift towards sustainability. Learn about how Smart Energy tech can be the solution.

SMART CITY MANAGEMENT: “Programmable Cities in China”
Tuesday 22 November at 5:00 – 6:00 pm (HKT/SGT), 10:00 – 11:00 am (CET)
The global population is expected to grow to 10 billion by 2050, and 70% of these people will live in cities. Hence, our future is inevitably urban, and Smart Citytech is the essential, unstoppable revolution that paths our way to future-proof cities, perhaps better described as “programmable cities”. Let us take a deep dive into the 800 emerging programmable cities in China that have adopted responsive digital infrastructure designed to be flexible and scalable to match the long-term needs of the cities and their residents.

SMART COMPUTING: “Living in an All-Connected World “
Wednesday 23 November at 5:00 – 6:00 pm (HKT/SGT), 10:00 – 11:00 am (CET)
Smart Cities mean nothing without data. In an ideal world of a Smart City, all devices should essentially be connected, transmitting data using wireless technology and the cloud. Cloud-based IoT applications receive, analyze and manage data in real-time to help municipalities, enterprises and citizens make better decisions that improve quality of life. Think this is too big of a dream to achieve? Think again. Let industry experts tell you how we’ve already leaped into an all-connected world.

SMART BUILDINGS: “No More Excuses for Dumb Buildings”
Thursday 24 November at 5:00 – 6:00 pm (HKT/SGT), 10:00 – 11:00 am (CET)
Buildings contribute close to 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions, thus playing an integral role as the voices of net-zero have become louder in recent years. How do we then help buildings become more energy efficient? The answer is simple – make them smarter. Uncover an array of deep technologies and how they optimize buildings to perform better for not just the environment, but building managers and tenants as well.
