June 20, 2017 @ 08:30 - 12:30 BST

Are we seeing an era of technology disruption or merely an evolution of our urban environment adjusting to the digital age?

Building on a growing Tech Forum programme that will be complimentary to the AoU’s emerging Digital Cities programme, the ULI UK will be holding a Tech Conference on the 20 June that will explore how innovative and emerging technology is reshaping and influencing our cities.

Connectivity and digitisation of our cities could see the most rapid impact to urban realm since the industrial revolution with far reaching implications for business and wider society. This conference will explore how emerging technology is influencing our urban environment and take a deep dive into the near future, to understand how digital technology can create the best outcomes for the greatest number of people and deliver resilient cities.
