Union of Quebec Municipalities association to meet in Outaouais this May
The Union of Quebec Municipalities has announced the 101st edition of its annual meeting, Assises 2023, which will take place from May 3 to 5, 2023, in Gatineau, Quebec. This year's theme is "The essential local government," which aims to showcase the critical role that municipalities play in the development of communities and the lives of citizens. With their vision, agility, and ability to innovate, municipalities are essential in meeting today's challenges and are committed to developing Quebec and its regions.
The event will bring together elected officials and municipal representatives from across Quebec to discuss issues related to local governance. Participants will explore ways to improve the quality of municipal services and strengthen collaboration between different levels of government. The event will also provide a platform to showcase innovative solutions that can help municipalities become more efficient and reduce their operating costs.
Dimonoff, a top provider of IoT solutions, is proud to participate in the event and contribute to the discussions on how IoT technologies can help municipalities improve their services. Dimonoff's sales team will present its range of solutions, including public lighting and smart parking management systems, which can aid municipalities in reducing their operating costs, enhancing the quality of life of citizens, and contributing to the fight against climate change. Dimonoff's solutions enable real-time monitoring and remote control of critical infrastructure assets, leading to better operational efficiency, cost savings, and improved service delivery for citizens.
Dimonoff's CEO, Jean-Michel Laurin, will be speaking at the conference, sharing insights on how the company's solutions can help municipalities address some of the key challenges they face in managing their infrastructure. He will also participate in panel discussions on topics such as data privacy and security in smart cities, and the role of technology in creating more resilient and sustainable communities. "Smart cities are the future of urban development, and we are excited to be part of this event," said Laurin. "Our solutions are designed to help municipalities optimize their operations, reduce costs, and improve the quality of life for their citizens. We look forward to sharing our expertise and learning from other industry leaders."
Dimonoff's technology is already being employed by many Quebec municipalities to manage their urban lighting assets. The ongoing smart lighting control project, which Dimonoff jointly implements with the Fédération Québécoise des Municipalités (FQM), has connected over 145,000 smart streetlights and remotely controls them via the Dimonoff | SCMS asset management platform. This project has allowed cities of all sizes to use the same systems as big metropolises, reduce their public lighting expenses, lower greenhouse gas emissions per capita, and comply with the Dark Sky standards to reduce light pollution.
The Smart Cities conference is a unique opportunity for Dimonoff to showcase its solutions and expertise, and to connect with other leaders in the industry. With the global smart cities market expected to reach $2.57 trillion by 2025, there is a huge potential for growth in this space, and Dimonoff is well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.
Dimonoff's participation in the Smart Cities conference is a testament to the company's leadership in the smart city space, and its commitment to helping municipalities become more efficient and sustainable in managing their infrastructure. As cities around the world continue to face the challenges of rapid urbanization, climate change, and resource depletion, solutions like Dimonoff's will play an increasingly important role in creating more livable, resilient, and equitable communities.
