HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 11, 2019
Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division will host the Public Safety Leadership Summit, an exclusive gathering of top public safety executives, at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s international digital technology conference. Hand-picked experts from organizations such as Microsoft, IDC and Public Policy Forum will facilitate discussions on current and future challenges facing public safety agencies and the role emerging technologies will play in creating safer cities and nations. The two-day event will be held at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 11-12.
Dynamic mission requirements and increasing demands are driving unprecedented change in public safety. New threats and hazards are creating previously unforeseen challenges, forcing emergency organizations to embrace a culture of change to better adapt. At the same time, new technologies, such as IoT, 5G, AI, reality capture, multimedia sharing and sensor-based data, are creating opportunities for digitally transforming mission-critical communications to better meet the transitioning needs of public safety agencies. The invitation-only event will bring together thought leaders to discuss how to navigate the changing industry landscape and to explore new technologies for better serving citizens.
“Hosting the Public Safety Leadership Summit underscores Hexagon’s commitment to helping cities around the world become safer and more resilient,” said Bill Campbell, senior vice president of the Americas for Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division. “By gathering the brightest minds in the industry, open discussions can shape future strategies for achieving safer communities through technology and implementing change. This will bring value to the first responder community and citizens worldwide.”
The event will be divided into three parts: Current & Future Challenges Facing Public Safety Agencies; Advancements & Opportunities in Technology; and Overcoming Challenges & Implementing Change. Sessions will cover a wide variety of topics from an extensive list of experts, including “Key Tech Developments Transforming Public Safety” presented by Alison Brooks of IDC, “Cyber Security IS Public Security” presented by Matthew Littleton of Microsoft and “Emergency Management Challenges for Public Safety Leaders” presented by Satyamoorthy Kabilan of Public Policy Forum, to name a few. Following each presentation is the opportunity for all attendees to participate in an open discussion by sharing their ideas and personal experiences. Attendees will also have access to Hexagon technology leaders, enabling them to influence future public safety technologies.
