Smart City Summits
Delos Delta continues to work with Wyndham City to deliver an ongoing series of Smart City Summits. The Summits are an opportunity for Council to come together with the community, businesses, and stakeholders to discuss the future possibilities associated with innovation and technology, and how these might impact Wyndham.
Delos Delta worked with Council to plan, design, and deliver the event, coordinating keynote speakers and facilitating group challenges to workshop local scenarios and opportunities.
