    China's rise over the last 30 years has led to unprecedented economic, political and technological growth and development. In the process, it has transformed to be one of the world's fastest urbanizing nations. By 2025, China will have constructed the equivalent to 10 New York-sized cities. However, China's ambitions and focus has evolved to be a world leader in tackling global issues. This transition placed in motion enormous cultural shifts that have prompted an agenda to elevate both their national and cultural identity.

    Now, China sets its sights on their next frontier: a focus on their communities, the future of their younger generations, and the culture they will come to define. New technologies also come into play that re-define how the country governs, how their citizens interact, and how cities are planned as a result. This brings rise to integration of technologies like artificial intelligence to more efficiently manage cities, improve buildings safety, and increase the quality of life for its people. These shifts will affect how people live, work and play and certainly all aspects of our built environment.

    As China's influence grows, what happens inside of China becomes increasingly relevant to all cities around the world. Attendees will benefit from this intensive, three-day forum to meet and interact with notable people and other allied professionals engaged in this important discussion on the new reality in China.
