SMART Cities Webinar, with Frost & Sullivan and AIM Congress

GDP took part in a joint webinar last month to discuss “Smart Cities of the Future” with Mani James, Senior Vice President of Frost & Sullivan. Hosted by Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) we covered topics such as the critical success factors required in the post pandemic era and use of the latest technology to drive new solutions and transformation.

Interestingly a poll conducted during the webinar found that the most common perceived obstacle for developing smart cities was the absence of strong municipal leadership. An area we will be investigating more in follow up webinars.
