Discussion topics would range from designing infrastructure more efficiently in metropolitan areas to building the smart cities of the future.

  1. The fragmentation of the transport landscape will create tiers of travel that will allow people to choose the perfect option for their situation.
  2. The ascendance of alternative energy, autonomous assistance, and artificial intelligence will soon disrupt how we move through and shape communities.
  3. More than just fixing bad traffic – social inequity and our quality of life are at stake in the decisions that lay ahead for a city on the rise.
