The City of Raleigh partnered with NC State University to host the 2018 Triangle Smart Cities Summit in October at the Raleigh Convention Center. Over 500 people attended to explore themes of security and privacy, big data, health and public safety, energy and infrastructure, citizen engagement, transportation, and logistics. The event brought together community leaders, elected officials, industry executives, and academic leaders to discuss and share ideas on how to make the region smarter and more connected. Several City representatives spoke at the event, including Mayor, Nancy McFarlane; Assistant City Manager, Tansy Hayward; and Business Retention and Expansion Manager, Derrick Minor.
