ASCA postpones Smart Cities conference

The Australian Smart Communities Association has been forced to postpone its Smart Cities conference as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event, originally scheduled for 28–29 May, has been put on hold out of concern for the health and wellbeing of attendees, the association said in a statement.

ASCA is working with the event’s venue to set a revised date for the event, but one has yet to be confirmed, the association said.

ASCA was founded as a collaborative coalition of local government, Regional Development Associations (RDAs) and Regional Organisations of Councils (ROCs) to be a peak industry association in Australia for the rapid development of “digital, sharing and interconnected communities”.

The second annual Smart Cities Conference was set to bring together representatives from government and the buildings, roads, transport and utilities industries to explore the latest developments in smart city technologies.

The postponement came shortly after the Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand (SCCANZ) was forced to move its annual Smart Cities Week online as a result of the outbreak. That event will be replaced by a series of online activities held throughout 2020.
