Hello All -

We have several exciting updates on the Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) Festival in Washington, DC on June 1, 2015, a culminating event of the highly successful Smart City/Internet of Things (IoT) program launched in August 2014.

The GCTC Festival Agenda includes:

  • A special visit by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima from the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Royal Couple will kick-off a European-focused plenary session that showcases European and American Smart City / IoT projects. The Royal Couple will also tour a number of Dutch and American exhibits at the Festival.
  • Exciting keynotes from thought-leaders and agencies from within the US Government, including Thomas Kalil, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
  • Presentations and exhibitions from over 45 project teams - with cities including New York NY, Chicago IL, San Francisco CA, Portland OR, Austin TX, Charlotte NC, Chattanooga TN, Columbus OH, Flagstaff AZ, Kansas City MO, and Washington DC.
  • Great opportunities to speak face-to-face with members of GCTC teams pursuing cutting-edge projects related to the use of Smart City and IoT applications to advance disaster response, energy efficiency, remote healthcare, public safety, effective transportation and urban planning.

Please visit to register and to review the recently posted agenda for the Festival.
