SmartGIG Chicago is produced by passionate entrepreneurs who have been in working in the broadband and mobile industries for more than 15 years. We are on a mission to bring the next era of broadband networking — gigabit networks and ‘smart city’ — information and education to leaders from the private and public sectors throughout the country’s largest metro areas.

The US is on the cusp of a tidal wave of technology spending focused on digital infrastructure. Much, if not most of that spending is converging on the metro area: cities and municipalities plus regional clusters of universities and enterprises. As in the 1990s, when the broadband and mobile industries were emerging and disrupting the traditional communications markets, today we are in the early stages of fundamental transformation in the networked digital economy.

If we can help your business manage this huge transition, give us a call. Our media properties are designed to be flexible, adaptable and useful for every individual stakeholder. We look forward to hearing from you!
