World Cities Summit – June 2014
From June 1st – 4th 2014, AGT will be participating in the World Cities Summit, which is a global platform for government leaders and industry experts to address livable and sustainable city challenges, share integrated urban solutions and forge partnerships.
The event, which is being hosted in Singapore, is being jointly organized by Singapore’s Centre for Livable Cities (CLC) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and will consist of a summit conference, exhibition and Global Mayors forum. The biennial event typically attracts over 200 city and state representatives from all over the world and is also co-located with the Singapore International Water Week and the CleanEnviro Summit.
As a result of AGT’s partnership with the Singapore government and as part of a consortium of companies that has been working on a smart city pilot project in Singapore, we have been invited along with other consortium members Hitachi Asia and O’Connors, to present our CityMIND platform and solutions to a global delegation of mayors and city authorities. Our consortium pooled its highly innovative capabilities to successfully deploy Phase 1 of what is known as the Singapore Safe-City Test bed project that we will share more details about as the conference approaches. AGT also has a booth in the exhibition space that will feature the following interactive and visual offerings:
• CityMIND Platform Demo
• Next Generation City Dashboard
• Mobile City Sensing covert camera example
• Water & Environment Monitoring Showcase
Executives attending on behalf of AGT include Jens Wegmann, Chief Business Officer and President of Global Sales and Solutions; Joachim Schaper, Vice President and Head of Research Organization; and Geoffrey Baird, President, Product and Technology. Geoffrey Baird will also speak on behalf of AGT during the summit conference and focus on “Cities: What they’re telling us today…what we’ll hear in the not-too-distant future.” His speech will highlight key areas of interest including challenges faced by modern cities, how the consortium has addressed those challenges in the test bed pilot project using specific proof points and examples, as well as key takeaways from the project that are applicable to other major cities.
We have a number of exciting activities planned around the event so please take the time to follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn to hear about our experiences on the ground and to be the first to learn about forthcoming announcements and product launches
