Tuesday, September 26



Bigbelly’s VP of Global Marketing and North American Distribution, Leila Dillon, will take the stage to discuss the Meaningful Convergence of Smart City Solutions and Core City Services in the Smart Technologies conference track. Be sure to join us on Tuesday, September 26 at 8:00 AM in Room 321!

How do Smart City platforms deliver the greatest impact on a municipality and its constituents? The answer converges on understanding how to solve real city problems in smarter, scalable ways with innovative, smart technology platforms. This case study details a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform and the data associated that has transformed public space waste management and has continued to evolve it to support of the growing needs of a Smart City today and tomorrow.

Solar-powered trash compactors are merely the physical foundation acting as a catalyst of change to transform the least efficient and resource-intensive city service: public space waste. Smart Cities are learning how to measure and record performance of data-driven core city services to gain insights and make informed decisions for tomorrow. They are using data from a smart system to enhance public waste operation productivity and sustainability. This session steps outside the comfort zone to understand and embrace the change required with a Smart City Solution which resides exactly “where the people are” and has the ability to do and offer more tomorrow than it can today.

Attend this session to thoughtfully examine the real challenges faced in public spaces as they relate to waste and recycling operations and the opportunities to improve the quality of life for constituents, optimize operations, and lessen the environmental impact by use of smart, connected technology for data-driven waste management. Join us to plan and strategize how to best leverage Smart City solutions and technologies that are available today and have the capability to do even more for the smarter cities of the future. We hope to see you at 8 AM on Tuesday the 26th in Room 321!
