Smart Cities Pavillion

September 2016, Market on the Edge, Birchwood Hotel, Johannesburg

Rolling out smart cities to cope with urbanisation in South Africa.

The time to roll out smart cities to cope with urbanisation in South Africa has arrived!

We will showcase the latest thought-leadership in the utilisation of ICT to meet the demands of the citizens of cities in South Africa. Delegates will be presented with access to technology service providers, with a view to enabling implementation that enhances quality of life for all citizens of our beautiful country.

The SAIS 2016 Smart City Pavilion creates a platform for stakeholders to experience and explore the integration of information and communication technology (ICT) solutions for best practice in the management of municipal assets such as:

  • Municipal information systems;
  • Educational institutions;
  • Water supply networks;
  • Transportation systems;
  • Health services;
  • Natural resources;
  • Electricity supply;
  • City assets.

This is an opportunity to get together and observe collaborative innovation & intelligence, crowdsourcing, eco-city management,
knowledge economy, metropolitan area networks and open-data that enable cities to deal with:

  • Integrating with central government;
  • Natural resource optimisation;
  • Waste management;
  • Community buy-in;
  • Ageing populations;
  • Urban agriculture;
  • Entertainment;
  • Tourism;
  • Policing

Join us as pioneering forerunners, motivated by meeting the needs of Mzanzi’s people!
“A smart city is one that has digital technology embedded across all city functions.”
