CityAge is a platform for ideas and business development, designed to enable new partnerships among the business, government and societal decision makers who are building the 21st Century.
Our conferences – and growing international network – provide an opportunity to understand and identify key markets and emerging opportunities; meet industry and government leaders; visit key markets and meet key contacts; and build collaboration and communication among individuals, organisations, professions, sectors and cities around the world.
Founded in 2012 in Vancouver, Canada, our events have taken place, or are scheduled, in New York City, Hong Kong, Toronto, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Ottawa, Vancouver, Florida, and The Waterloo Region.
To date more than 4,500 leaders in business, government, research and society have attended CityAge.
Sponsors of CityAge play a collaborative role in shaping each conference.
We work closely with our sponsors so they can take a thought leadership role to facilitate the exchange of ideas and the creation of business partnerships. Bring your best city-building ideas to CityAge. We’ll make sure that the right people hear and see them to build the future.
