What Works: Chicago

In conjunction with POLITICO Magazine's yearlong reporting project, POLITICO will host its inaugural What Works event, the first in a national series of conversations around the future of cities. Can the Rust Belt really become the Tech Belt? Can robots save a city's economy and reinvent its jobs? Why isn't my city the next Silicon Valley?
We’ve lined up speakers who will explore how technology and data are redefining and rebuilding cities. Headline speakers include: Chicago Mayor Rahm EmanuelGary Mayor Karen Freeman-WilsonPittsburgh Mayor William Peduto, with special guests Matt Moog, Chicago Tech Entrepreneur, CEO of Wavetabel Labs and Founder of BuiltInChicago.org,  Prof. Saskia Sassen, Columbia University and Howard Tullman, CEO of 1871.
When: April 9; 8:30 a.m.
Where: Chase Towers; 21 S. Clark St.; Chicago, Ill.
