2019 LIGHTNING TALKS
We are pleased to be hosting a second year of Lightning Talks as part of the 2019 Urbanism Next Conference!
Lightning Talks feature presentations which typically consist of 20 slides which are only up for 20 seconds each, however we’ll be shaving off a few more precious seconds and doing 20 slides for 19 seconds each in honor of the year 2019!
Urbanism Next is partnering with the Portland chapter of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) to welcome a mix of established and emerging professionals to present their take on the topic: How do we harness emerging technologies to reach desired outcomes?
This is a great way to learn something new in a quick and energetic environment! Admission to the Lightning Talks is included in your Conference registration and this event will take place in downtown Portland. Local professionals are also encouraged to attend. (Additional details about how to RSVP coming soon!) Appetizers and beverages will be available to enjoy as you network with others and hear fresh thinking on these topics.
Thank you to DKS for sponsoring this year’s Lightning Talks!
