The first of this year’s Community Study Tours is planned for June and will visit Chattanooga – the USA’s first Gigabit City.
The final details will be confirmed soon after we get back from our ‘pathfinder’ visit (today we are only half way through) but the preliminary plan can be seen in the Business and Community Development section of the main Group Intellex website.
Chattanooga will interest not only ‘smart city’ developers but also innovators from energy utilities, environmentalists and investors. With inward manufacturing investment from VW, service relocation by Amazon and strong leadership in public services, the city has become an economic exemplar.
Further details and registration process will be confirmed in early March.
