Wireless has become as much a public utility as water and electricity for hundreds of cities and municipalities in North America – NOW ITS YOUR TURN TO JOIN WORLDS MOST COMPETITIVE AND INTELLIGENT LOCAL COMMUNITIES!


THIS INTERNATIONAL SUMMIT REVEALS HOW PARTICIPANTS CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEW WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES AND LEARN FROM MOST SUCCESSFUL INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDIES.


Just as venture capital fueled the Internet economy, municipal grants are being used to seed a projected boom in wireless networks. The challenge facing cities, just as it was for dot-com entrepreneurs, is to distill ways of making money from a largely amorphous technology. Communities such as Long Beach (CA) or Fredericton (NB) established free wireless networks to revive their downtowns and bring new business initiatives traditionally located around large metropolis.

With high office costs and business moving to the suburban areas, new wireless initiatives in Toronto, London, Chicago or Philadelphia help the local entrepreneurs to move back to the downtown core.

Don’t miss your opportunity to differentiate your local economy from other municipalities increasing its ability to attract and retain ‘knowledge industries’ looking for a location that offers an innovative, productive and exciting environment.
