The Smart Cities Group is an international enterprise with a local presence.

The primary focus of the group is the open collaboration, networking and innovation platform for the public and private sector, including academia and other interested stakeholders. The group engages in public speaking, consulting and brainstorming by tapping subject matter experts from within its community of members. The Group also conducts media outreach and marketing through partners. Advertising and marketing includes Smart Cities Group videos and audio recordings.

Smart Cities Group has a strategic alliance with Smart Cities Investments a leader in Public-Private-Partnerships (P3) funding and has the backing of the 25th largest Capital Permanent Wealth Fund in the world which seeks profitable P3 ventures.



The group is formed around three key themes: (1) Smart City projects and the companies involved in those projects. (2) Smart City related technologies, and (3) giving companies and stakeholders a platform to present to an audience focused on smart cities professionals.

Group meetings are conducted once a quarter and are by invitation only.

Consulting is conducted on an ad hoc basis by interested and qualified subject matter experts from within the group's membership and through third party companies in partnership with the Smart Cities Group.

Smart Cities publishes a column which is managed by Thinkstr.CO and runs on the Smart Cities Group webpage and other social media sites.
