1:15 pm - 2:30 pm • City Readiness Hub: North Florida Smart Regioncity readiness hub
Our City Readiness Hub sessions offer a unique opportunity to hear from cities who are “in the trenches” on their journey to becoming a smart city. Featured Cities will highlight current challenges and will then receive targeted advice from Mentor Cities—other smart city practitioners who are further along the path to creating more livable, workable, and sustainable cities. Mentors have been carefully selected from those cities already designated as “Readiness Challenge winners and finalists” and paired with Featured Cities who are facing similar issues.
