NextGen Events


Our 2015 Study Tour takes delegates to Ontario, Canada and a cluster of smart high-tech centres and ‘intelligent communities’ with local governments determined to develop their economies and communities. In addition to the specific city/community visits and master classes, we will also take advantage of the gathering of mayors and civic/business leaders at the Intelligent Community Forum’s 2015 Global Summit in Toronto.

Why Ontario? Easy access to advanced exemplars of city and rural communities plus the huge advantage that Toronto is the hub for a meeting of mayors and community leaders from around the world gathered for the Intelligent Community Forum 2015 Global Summit.
