Join MESH CIties in B.C. for the Light Savers Conference

Vancouver's "Street Light" sculpture at False Creek (1997 by artist B. Miller with A. Tregebov, K. Jin, R. Ouellette)

What else is going on in Canada besides the Google Sidewalk / Waterfront Toronto partnership? Find out next week in Coquitlam, British Columbia. I'll be participating in the day long conference with some of Canada's leading Smart City movers. Join us there!

On November 6, join the IES British Columbia Section, IMSA and the LSNetwork for our full-day summit in Coquitlam to hear from expert speakers in municipal lighting, intelligent communities and big data.

With the rapid adoption of LED streetlights in tandem with the mass development of connected devices, cities have a unique opportunity to transform streetlights to become the information and communications technology (ICT) backbones of intelligent communities. Summit discussions will address the challenges and opportunities for networked LED control systems in our future cities, with keynote presentations from

Senior Engineer
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Interim Executive Director of Infrastructure
City of Kitchener
