The Urban Organism
More than just a digital city, a smart city can be likened to a biological system. Akin to a living organism, each part impacts on one another to perform functions.
Coined the urban organism, smart cities ensure interoperability between various systems for it to be agile, flexible and sustainable. We're creating a whole new world of possibilities today.

Most conferences leave building connections to chances. Here, we give you a contact list so that you can arrange for meetings in advance and personally introduce you to decision makers that are relevant to you.
Actually Useful Panels
Our panels aren't about high level, abstract discussions. We ask the panelists on-the-ground, practical questions that you would have asked yourself. Come get your inspirations here!

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is igloohome, a Startup, Organizing a Summit? What’s the Difference from Other Conferences?
As a startup, igloohome knows that most conferences leave connecting companies to the right people to luck. Buy side companies are constantly bombarded by what the big players offer but what they are looking for are new, disruptive ideas. Instead of waiting for others to solve our problem, we decided to use this summit to bridge the gap by making the connection process more efficient and facilitate deal closures for participants. Instead of trying to seek out connections one-by-one, we link up the different communities and ecosystems to build a mega-network and allow participants to tap on the mega-network to form their own relations.
What’s different about your “connection process”?
We got inspired by six degrees of separation and created an incentivized referral mechanism. Probably the first of such implemented at a Summit, one's access to the network depends on the resources (in the form of connections, funding or others) one shares with the community. The more valuable the connections or resources one brings to the ecosystem, the more one can tap on others' relationships and expand their own.
Is this Summit about igloohome? What is igloohome's role in this Summit?
No, the Summit isn't about igloohome. The Summit is a private sector initiative backed by government entities and industry bodies. igloohome is leading the initiative but happy to include anyone who wants to partner or get involved. Reached out to us at email@example.com!
