The Rise of Smart CIties: A Real Estate Perspective
| 17 Sept 2020 | 4 pm JKT / 10 am BST | RSVP HERE

Jeremy Kelly, Lead Director - Global Research at JLL

We hear so much about smart cities. The number of governments across the globe declaring their intention of make their city ‘smart’ is staggering. Equally, there is a huge amount of hype and heightened expectation about the roll out, characteristics and benefits of smart city solutions.

We would like to invite you to our webinar “The Rise of Smart Cities: A Real Estate Perspective” where we will explore the practical opportunities and challenges of creating a smart city, drawing on the experience of several case studies across the globe.

Our aim is to throw fresh light on the role that the real estate industry can play in creating truly scalable and successful smart city solutions, and to open the conversation about the potential role of smart cities in Indonesia.
