Call for Participation: Smart Cities Summit


I, am directed by the National President to call on all town planners to participate in the Smart Cities International Summit Nigeria being organized by the Federal Ministry of Communications and the Local Organizing Committee of Smart Cities Summit Nigeria. The event is slated for 8th– 9th August, 2017 at the Congress Hall of the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja from 9: am daily.

The Summit with the theme, “Leveraging on technology solutions to improve the efficiency of cities” is expected to take critical look at the level of preparedness, unique challenges and emerging solutions necessary for a sustainable smart city initiative for the country. It is also expected to proffer practical steps and solutions that will assist the Federal Government in formulating a unified and national robust policy that will have a corresponding implementable framework towards the smart cities Nigerian initiative.

You will agree with me that this is one of the areas of our core competence as Town Planners. Hence, I advise that we take our pride of place in this whole process, especially at this policy formulation and critical stage. You know as well as I do, that the benefits to us ultimately both in the public, private and academic sectors will be immense. I therefore enjoin all town planners to participate actively.

The registration fee (early bird) is thirty five thousand naira (N35,000) per delegate. This fee is valid up to the 6th of July, 2017. After that, normal registration fee of sixty thousand naira (N60,000) per delegate will take effect. The registration fee includes entrance to the exhibition and conference, delegate kit, conference proceedings, coffee/tea, networking lunch and invite to the exhibition opening ceremony (inclusive of all taxes).
