About Smart City

A Unique History, A Unique Company

Twenty-five years ago, our company was founded in the Houston Astrodomain Complex. Our roots were then, and remain today, deeply engrained in the events industry. We were the first company to recognize the importance of telecommunications for the exhibitor experience at convention centers and to focus our efforts on delivering superior customer service.

Back then, we operated as Centel Facilities Communications. In the late 1980s, we expanded our business through exclusive contracts with major convention centers in Anaheim, Houston, Los Angeles, and Charlotte.
