On October 30, COMTO Washington hosted its 2nd Annual Awards Banquet: Smart Cities, Smart Communities: Planes, Trains & Automobiles. This event combined awards recognition, education and information exchange, networking, dinner, live music and virtual reality/augmented (VR/AR) experiences at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle.

A highlight of the event was a Virtual Reality Booth from event sponsor HNTB which gave guests the opportunity to experience what vehicles, communications and utilities look like in the smart city of the future.  

Youth scholarship awards were also a highpoint of the evening.  “Thanks to our sponsors, this year we are presenting $15,000 in scholarships to 12 students seeking postsecondary credentials in fields from aviation to urban planning,” said Washington Chapter President Linneth Riley-Hall.
