Digital Transformation and the Intelligent Community seminar this Thursday


When: Thursday April 26th 2018 from 11:30am to 1:00pm

Where: Hamilton Technology Centre at 7 Innovation Drive, Dundas, ON

Organizer: Net Access (@NetAccessInc)




This seminar will explore what it means to be an intelligent community and how it will impact business for those working and living in Hamilton and the surrounding region.

Hamilton has been named to the Intelligent Community Forum’s Top7 intelligent communities in the world. Canada boasts 36 communities that have achieved one of the Intelligent Community Forum’s designations. Most will be likely competitors in Infrastructure Canada’s “Smart Cities Challenge” which is a pan-Canadian competition open to communities of all sizes, including municipalities, regional governments and Indigenous communities. In fact, cities and communities around the world are undergoing digital transformations that are affecting the ways we live, work, and play.
