The SmartSA Vendor Summit is a new approach to vendor engagement. As an alternative to the standard Request for Information (RFI) process, the summit invites local & national businesses, civic leaders, municipal partners, educators, and researchers to have a direct conversation with SmartSA partners regarding challenges faced across the city.
The primary topics include the public challenges and solutions in Mobility, Access to Services, and Sustainability. Summit takeaways will then steer pilot initiatives in the City Council-designated Innovation Zones.
