Transformative Technologies for Last Mile Delivery
Digital technologies are transforming the world of retail and logistics but there are questions about whether current models of home delivery are sustainable and, similarly, whether current “click and collect” models are viable in the medium term. This event aims to give prominence to the new approaches that promise to transform last mile delivery, and to explore the issues around a theme that is on the cusp of change.
Wednesday 22nd June / 5.30 - 8.00pm
Emerging Digital Technologies for the Smart City
Redevelopment of Greenwich Peninsula, Charlton Riverside and Thamesmead will all provide an opportunity to test new smart services/technologies and to work directly with Digital Greenwich and the dynamic ecosystem of emerging talents and SMEs in Greenwich.
We are looking for new smart services and technologies which could play an important role in the future of Greenwich, Greater London and major international cities. This event offers an excellent opportunity for companies and individuals to demonstrate new technologies and business ideas and it’s a chance to learn about working with our partners.
