Thanks to a strong technology sector, local innovators, green practices, smart public planning and an unparalleled quality of life, San Diego was selected by the National Geographic Channel to be featured in a “World’s Smart Cities” documentary.
National Geographic Channel’s (NGC) “World’s Smart Cities: San Diego” documentary is an unprecedented exploration of the U.S.’ 8th largest city where technology, talent and innovation create a new urban environment that will emerge as a leading city in the 21st century. San Diego was considered for the documentary based on a number of factors: size of population, demographics/cultural diversity, livability, economy and business climate, educational institutions, leadership, and community, among other factors.
“Both business and leisure travelers have known about San Diego’s appealing weather and friendly beach lifestyle for years,” said Joe Terzi, President and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority. “However, ‘World’s Smart Cities’ will show viewers worldwide that San Diego has more than a sunny outlook. The city’s talent, innovation and creativity highlighted in this documentary prove that San Diego’s business environment and local culture are among the world’s best.”
Other cities already featured in a documentary by National Geographic Channel include Bucharest, Adelaide and Durban. The film is currently scheduled to air in the U.S. and in more than 60 countries, distributed to more than 247 million households worldwide.
