We have entered a new age in which buying less and sharing more is becoming the norm. It has created efficiency and solved city challenges. However, this new peer-to-peer economy is leaving corporations and city management on the sidelines. But, what if instead of sitting on the sidelines, they were able to embrace the Sharing Economy? Can they share their resources, ideas, spaces, waste? Is the future of the shared economy a ‘Shared City’? Join us December 5th – 7th for ‘The Shared City’ as we celebrate the success of the Sharing Economy and build the future of a Shared City.




We will kickoff the event on Thursday night with a celebration of the success of the Sharing Economy in our third edition of the THINK&ACT Party series. Equal part social mixer and demo fair, the THINK&ACT Party is a fast, fun, and engaging way to explore the Sharing Economy and interact with industry leaders.
