2019 Urbanism Next Conference

Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 8:00am to 5:30pm

Oregon Convention Center 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR 97232

The National Urbanism Next Conference is back in Portland, OR May 7-9!

Last year, the discussion was focused on how technology is changing cities. This year, we will explore the ways that technological innovations can be harnessed to achieve desired outcomes. What has been tried? What has worked? What has not worked? What should we try next? How can the private and public sectors collaborate to ensure that desired outcomes drive technological innovation rather than the other way around?

An interdisciplinary group of experts from the public, private, and academic sectors will come together to discuss recent innovations, research findings, pilot projects, collaborative efforts between the public and private sectors, and much more!

The National Urbanism Next Conference is a collaboration between the University of Oregon and the National and Oregon Chapters of the American Planning Association, the American Institute of Architects, and the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Urban Land Institute Northwest.
