Technology Infustructure + Civic Innovation Summit

Oregon Convention Center
777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Portland, OR 97232, US (map)



With a global reputation as a center of cutting-edge urban planning and a burgeoning technology industry, Portland is poised to redefine what it means to be a “smart city” in the 21st Century. Join us for an afternoon summit that will explore national best practices in civic innovation using technology applications and infrastructure and what this means for Portland’s future.

The summit will conclude with a “Reverse Pitch” event where officials from the State of Oregon, City of Portland, Trimet, and Metro will present interesting challenges they are facing in their respective governments where technology might present a solution. Portland Mayor Charlie Hales will kick off the Reverse Pitch event by discussing the unique opportunity we have to establish the Portland Metro Region as a “living laboratory” for technology innovation.

Panel Discussions: Three separate panel discussions will talk about ways in which Networks, Cloud Computing, and Data/Apps are enabling innovation in the public sector.
