Planning for 2024

We plan to continue to evolve Future of Cities to hone in on thought provoking topics, celebrate innovation, and foster peer networks - together.

The goal is to build off of our strengths. Your feedback, as a past organizer or participant, is crucial to our planning process. If you have any notes or ideas for next year you'd like to share, please do! We're all ears.

We invite you to brainstorm the 2024 Conference Theme with us. The goal is to establish the theme by Summer 2023, so that we can hit the ground running on designing panels and keynotes this Fall.
