CIVIQ – an industry-leader with a proven track record of smart city innovation – today launched its exclusive 2018 partnership with the United States Conference of Mayors. At the US Conference of Mayors’ 86th Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C., hundreds of mayors from across the country will experience first-hand
CIVIQ’s multifunctional, people-centered platform, device and solutions. Located at the 86th Winter Meeting registration desk of the Capital Hilton, CIVIQ will feature a live, indoor WayPoint demonstration for the duration of the event. The Waypoint is CIVIQ’s state-of- the art, multi-purpose smart city hub. It will welcome attendees as they enter the meeting, offering a one-stop- shop for all event information on plenary sessions,
committee meetings, task force meetings and workshops on its 55-inch high definition interactive screen; free high-speed Wi-Fi; and a convenient charging station for all attendees’ digital devices. The WayPoint will also capture the moment for participating attendees with a “digital postcard.”
“We are proud to launch our new partnership with United States Conference of Mayors, and are thrilled to demonstrate our new model of citizen engagement at the 86 th Winter Meeting and at the Summer Meeting in Boston in June,” said Gerry Burns, president of CIVIQ. “It has been a pleasure to work with the team at USCM to create a new, valuable communications tool for every guest at the meeting. At CIVIQ, we believe that the heartbeat of every city is its people – and our technology solutions respond to the real needs of people by improving their daily lives by creating safer communities, healthier economies, and easier ways to move around a city or municipality.”
CIVIQ supports communities by innovating for safer, more sustainable, and more livable communities. Through interactive displays and a connected digital experience, CIVIQ’s people-centered technology provides free high-speed Wi-Fi for easy access to communications networks, timely transportation schedules and updates to public transit, and emergency alerts to enhance safety and security throughout the community. Our WayPoint network is at the heart of showing a community’s identity—its brand image to all who live, work and visit a city. CIVIQ is in the business of transforming every city into the digital world by helping them connect, protect and inform every resident.
