Led by Bristol City Council, this high-tech nerve centre facilitates collaborative traffic management, bus lane enforcement, monitoring of public spaces, telecare services and more. We’re delighted to confirm that Bristol City Council (amongst our keynote supporters for this edition) have agreed to provide delegates with a rare opportunity to tour the Operations Centre, immediately after the Smart Class!
