On 19-20 June 2023, the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) and the Regional Municipality of Durham, Ontario will jointly present the 2023 Top7 Intelligent Communities Conference: Better Together – Building a Strong Region from Diverse Communities. The two-day hybrid conference features live and online events in the Durham Region, culminating in the announcement of the Top7 Communities of 2023.
The Top7 Communities are chosen from among the Smart21 Communities of 2023 to be finalists in the yearly Intelligent Community Awards. In October 2023, one of these seven communities will be named the Intelligent Community of the Year at ICF’s Global Summit. The Durham Region was one of the Top7 Communities of 2022 and is a Smart21 Community again this year.
“The Durham Region has been on the Intelligent Community journey for a number of years, developing strategies and building partnerships to carry it out,” said ICF co-founder John Jung. “With the Top7 Conference, the Region is formalizing its Community Accelerator program for creating an innovative and growing economy on a digital foundation and an inclusive, affirming society and culture to realize its potential.”
