NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.
The Technology Division will be sponsoring a competition among public and private planning organizations about how they have deployed new technologies in their planning projects. Planning organizations that their projects are selected will discuss their projects at the session.
Self-driving cars will hit city streets soon. Will they induce a new boom in sprawl? Will they create a transit “golden age” with new ownership models? Explore the future of transportation with experts from Silicon Valley and New York.
The Technology Division will celebrate the winners of the 2017 Smart Cities Awards at a reception sponsored by WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff. The Smart Cities Awards recognize innovative plans or projects that have utilized and/or deployed technological tools, applications and methods as part of the planning process.
