Dublin Institute Smart Cities Workshop


Join us for insights from Ohio communities, including Athens, Springboro and municipalities within The Beta District. Learn about public-private partnerships from the perspective of private-sector stakeholders. Engage with regional initiatives furthering digital equity. This program is hosted by Dublin’s Global Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community. Please feel free to share this invitation with your network of individuals and organizations that may find the content interesting or helpful! Seating is limited, reserve a spot as soon as you can!

In addition to networking opportunities, the event includes three panel discussions. The first panel features representatives from municipalities across the state discussing their involvement in DriveOhio. A second panel will provide attendees with insights on innovative public-private partnerships, specifically related to the utilization of forward-thinking technology. Our third panel features representatives from digital equity coalitions and organizations around Ohio discussing inhibitors to digital equity, as well as work being done to close the digital divide.
