The Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum is a way of building a platform where overseas and local companies converge to explore new business opportunities and take the lead in the smart cities movement.
4 reasons why you should attend the Asia Pacific Smart Cities event
In our busy world, we often forget the importance of being in a live face-to-face setting with others from the business community. Being active in your industry can bring many benefits. Here are 4 reasons why I am excited to be attending the Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum, and why you should be too:
Access new ideas and inspirationReceive exciting perspectives and insights from Amsterdam Smart City Senior Strategy Advisor Frans-Anton Vermast; New Zealand Transport Agency Advisor Darren Baars; Barcelona City Council Chief Architect, Vicente Guallart and more. Don't miss the exciting opportunities to hear from these renowned national experts and return home with valuable takeaways to apply to your workplace.
Build your network with peersThis Forum provides a perfect opportunity to network and meet with fellow smart city-active and engaged professionals. Often competitors from other regions of the country can become valuable resources for referrals and best practices. Avoiding peers for fear of others discovering your competitive advantage can actually limit your own success. Collaboration is the way to approach networking. While there are those whose intentions can be suspect, most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level.
Sharpen your skillsThere is an abundance of online resources to help you gain extra knowledge in a certain subject. But at this forum, sessions will be diving into much greater, relevant detail. The event also includes break-out sessions and case studies that will allow you to put ideas to the test.
Have funBeing in business should be rewarding and fun. All work and no play can get old fast. The Asia Pacific Smart Cities conference adds a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing a social aspect into your learning and industry branding efforts. Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people!
