The agi is holding their event ‘Future Cities: Security’ at the Kingsway Hall Hotel, 66 Great Queen Street, Covent Garden in London next Thursday 8th July.

The event will focus on the challenges faced when planning and building cities in the future.

agi_securityFuture cities used to be sustainable and resilient to change. But triggers for change are increasing: energy and food prices, severe weather events, and aging infrastructure. Cities face a myriad of potential future shocks and stresses. To meet these challenges they must work to identify risks and mitigate against them with location as a key component.

  • How should we best monitor, measure and manage our cities?
  • The growth of the Internet of Things: will it improve the way we all navigate our cities?
  • How do we successfully translate urban data to measure our key cities’ economies?
  • How do we capture citizens’ wishes to shape the urban environments of the future?


Seize the opportunity to hear from innovative and lively speakers who will address such
questions, and more. Learn from experts from the commercial, public and academic worlds,
