How do we take the “City of Tomorrow” from fantasy to reality?  Populations are steadily climbing, with most concentrated in already jam-packed cities.  Moving from one place to another is getting more difficult, and aging transportation systems are failing.  Solutions are needed to maintain people’s freedom to move.

CAIC is excited to announce that John F. Kwant, Vice President, City Solutions, Ford Smart Mobility a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company will be its Annual Luncheon keynote speaker.  John, whose resume includes several prior key U.S. & international leadership roles at the company, now leads Ford’s global efforts to partner with municipalities to help bring the “City of Tomorrow” to life by identifying key urban mobility needs and developing & implementing solutions in cities worldwide. To truly understand what a city needs to move people & goods more efficiently, the discussion must focus on a wide range of issues facing cities, from modernizing power grids to implementing new technology such as autonomous vehicles.  John’s presentation is a “not-to-be-missed” event!
