Cities are changing rapidly. Citizens and consumers are relying on their mobile devices for more services, and have higher expectations from their governments. Brands and businesses are looking to engage with consumers in new and meaningful ways - merging digital and physical lines of business.
There is a new wave of technologies that will support these changing relationships and expectations: Proximity technologies like LTE Direct and Beacons, and Instrumented Infrastructure like LinkNYC in New York City will support a better, frictionless user experience, inform a more responsive government, and create new opportunities for commerce.
We will explore how Cities and business are moving to take advantage of these technologies and the opportunity to better engage with citizens and customers.
