The presentations will take place over lunch and there will be an opportunity to meet the speakers both before and after the meal.
Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia is fast on its way to becoming Australia’s first carbon neutral city. As part of this mission the South Australian Government is also determined to make Adelaide a fully connected Smart City and as a result is one of Cisco’s global network of Lighthouse Cities. Already the State sources over 30% of its electricity from renewable resources and is targeting 50% by 2020 and has recently changed its legislation to allow on-road trials of driverless cars which will take place in the city in early November. The State is looking for companies and organisations which will be able to help contribute to this exciting journey
