The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce presents:
Creative thinking continues to energize the Dulles region's tradition of embracing innovation, locally, nationally, and globally. The Innovate Conference is an opportunity to hear from leaders of key dynamic industries affecting our changing world, showcase the innovations taking place in the Dulles region, and stimulate our collective thinking.
Inevitably, these smart cities cultivate and attract a smart workforce; one that meets the demands of a dynamic economy. Implementing ground-breaking workforce initiatives and new and improved training and retention programs to create a smart workforce, smart cities will rapidly see the impact a culture of innovation can have on their local economy.
With 60% of the population expected to live in cities by 2050, smart cities are more than a trend, they are the wave of the future. These localities harness digital technology and intelligent design to create smart, sustainable cities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs, advancing our livability, workability and sustainability.

• Learn what the Dulles region is doing to identify, explore, deploy and expand smart city concepts,
technologies and partnerships across the region;

the Dulles region nurture a smart city workforce through recruitment pipelines, training initiatives and more.
