When: Thursday, December 6 | 4 – 8 pm
Where: Pena Station NEXT 6144 N. Panasonic Way, Denver

Twenty years ago few could have imagined on-demand ride services and retail, digital social networks, or net-zero energy districts. But now we are starting to design cities around tech infrastructure rather than plugging these features in later. How will this change our cities and the way we live? Come learn about what’s happening in Colorado compared to global examples from Canada, Japan and Kenya, along with the implications for the future of real estate, design, construction and land use. The program includes a tour of Panasonic’s Smart City facility at Pena Station Next and concludes with ULI Colorado’s famous holiday party.

Registration includes drinks and networking at post-program holiday party. Continuing education credits will be offered for AIA, AICP, and Colorado Real Estate Commission.
