Event details:

When: 26 February 2020, 12pm - 2pm
Where: Leicester Innovation Hub, University of Leicester,128 Regent Road, Leicester, England, LE1 7PA

Leicester City Council’s new Smart City strategy is aimed at improving people’s lives in the city through better use of digital technology. The strategy will combine Leicester’s digital, physical and social environment to deliver an inclusive, thriving and sustainable city for all.

At this event, LBV will host a debate to discuss the impact of the Smart City strategy and practices on your business. Attendees can find out more about how data collection underpins this strategy, how it is identifying new ways in which to benefit the citizens of Leicester, and how their company could find new business opportunities in a ‘Smart City’.

Speakers will include representatives from organisations and businesses who are already immersed in the Smart environment such as Leicester City Council’s Smart City team, a Smart Cities lead from De Montfort University and Earthsense, a Leicester-based business focused on managing air quality issues.

So if you or a colleague from your business is keen to find out what becoming a Smart City really means for Leicester, or what opportunities becoming a Smart City will offer, come and find out more.
