FCEDA showcasing Fairfax County as innovation hub at Smart Cities Week virtual conference

The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority is showcasing Fairfax County as an innovation hub in a virtual exhibitor booth as a sponsor at Smart Cities Week, a New Horizon: from Crisis, Opportunity: a Month of Collaborative Engagement Oct. 19 through Nov. 10, 2020.

Produced by the Smart Cities Council based in the Fairfax County community of Reston, Smart Cities Week is a bi-annual conference produced on the east and west coast of the US and Australia. Cities participating in the Council’s Readiness Program come to share how to accelerate projects and achieve the benefits of being a smart city. Smart Cities Week explores a new horizon with thousands of fellow smart city policy-makers and practitioners. Sessions are live and on-demand. Click here to see the extensive lineup of speakers.

Fairfax County has long been home to companies and organizations developing new technologies and ways to apply them. Just last week, the county government and Dominion, an energy company, cut the ribbon on Relay, an autonomous shuttle operating between the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro Station and the Mosaic District.

The SCC advances the cause of smart, sustainable cities through readiness guides, policy frameworks, financing templates and visibility campaigns. Registration for all Smart Cities Week sessions is complimentary. Click here to register for the event.
