Smart Cities Week Australia/New Zealand is powered by the Smart Cities Council, the peak industry body and the worlds longest running smart cities practitioner network.


SCW ANZ is the region's premier forum for leaders in technology, data and innovation to come together online and in-person to network, exchange and create opportunities for accelerating the region’s sustainability through technology and data solutions.

We are excited to shape our 2020 program around the theme ‘Future Nation’, which speaks to both the national advancement of smart cities across Australia and New Zealand, but also our need to ensure a digitally-enabled and data-driven recovery to what is becoming the greatest economic and social challenge of our time post COVID-19.

In 2020 the event will take on a unique and fresh approach to the idea of a conference. Rather that just convert our in-person to an online conference, or postpone or cancel it - we are delivering an even better experience that responds to our current global health, social and economic challenges.


This year we will be offering an experience that:

  • facilitates networking, knowledge exchange, leadership development and capability building

  • uses a diverse program of activities that are both on-line and in person - from live-streamed international keynotes to virtual roundtables, and case study presentations to online multi-week collaborative project planning

  • spans eight (8) months - from April to November 2020

  • brings the smart cities leadership community together for a final in-person Networking Day on 12th November in Melbourne.


We look forward to seeing you online soon at one of our highly engaging sessions.
