US Ignite Application Summit 2020 Moving to November


Dear Friends of US Ignite,

As so many others have in recent weeks, we have monitored the unfolding health crisis around coronavirus and made the determination not to hold the US Ignite Application Summit or the Forum event on Smart City Small Cells in Denver this April.

Instead, we have adjusted our plans in conjunction with our TechConnect partners who have decided to change the date and venue of the Smart Cities Connect Spring Conference & Expo set for April 6-9 in Denver to coincide with the Smart Cities Connect Fall Conference & Expo scheduled for November 17-19, 2020.

While we are disappointed not to see our community, industry, academic, and nonprofit partners as planned next month, we are looking forward to a rescheduled event! Please mark your calendars for November 17-19 in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. For those in our Smart Gigabit Communities (SGC) network, the fall conference will still include dedicated SGC meetings and content, application demos, and a hosted evening reception. As we work through the logistics, we will update you with details.

For event speakers and other partners, we are aiming to transition as much of the content we had planned for April to the November event. We’ll be in touch soon with updated information.

Finally, regarding the Forum event on Smart City Small Cells, we are still considering whether to reschedule for November, or whether to explore an earlier alternative. We will make a decision shortly and let everyone know.

Once again, the US Ignite team is disappointed to miss everyone in Denver next month, but we recognize the importance of everyone’s health and wellbeing. Take care, and we look forward to seeing you all in November.

Joe Kochan
CEO, US Ignite
