SEIZE THE GIGABIT OPPORTUNITY

A three-day learning and networking opportunity exclusively designed for leaders in current and emerging Gigabit Cities.

You’ll discover what Kansas City did to seize the gigabit opportunity. Learn from people with on-the-ground experience in what it takes to successfully manage a large-scale fiber-optic buildout and what it means for the community.

As Google Fiber, AT&T and other providers scale gigabit connectivity, your community needs to develop a plan for managing the social, civic and economic impact that technology brings. We’ll help you begin putting together your playbook for success as you enter this exciting period of innovation and change.
