Please submit a speaker proposal by 20th September through the Speaker Page of this website. We will consider all proposals and get back to you within a month of submission.

The conversations, debates and project showcases will be guided by a series of challenge-led, provocative and cross-cutting questions along the following themes: 

ThemeThe challenge
Place LeadershipPreparing our cities for the challenges and opportunities that rapid urbanisation brings
Connected IntelligenceHarnessing digital technologies and data to improve decision making and create better places
Transport & MobilityCreating transport systems that are integrated with places through new technologies and mobility modes
Climate ActionMaking robust business cases for testing and investing in sustainable, net zero technologies and infrastructure

A connected place is where more than just people, infrastructure, economy and planet come together. It’s also where the digital world, new modes of transport and mobility, and exciting new networks for trade and exchange coincide. A connected place is integrated, inter-dependent, interoperable and ultimately more productive and innovative.

But making a connected place succeed is hard. There are many stakeholders, businesses, regulators and community groups who want to be involved across every mode of transport, every type of building, the infrastructure that underpins them, and the data and digital platforms that connect them. That’s why we need to Accelerate Innovation. Together.
