What is Smart City Expo World Congress?

 

The mission of the Smart City Expo is to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation worldwide. Through the promotion of social innovation, the establishment of partnerships and the identification of business opportunities, the event is dedicated to creating a better future for cities and their citizens worldwide.

As the world's leading event for cities, Smart City Expo World Congress, offers a unique meeting point for the entire smart city ecosystem. Corporate leaders, public representatives, entrepreneurs, experts and academics from around the world come together to learn from each other, share experiences, talk about best practices and open new paths for international collaboration.

The event is based on the values ​​of social inclusion, sustainability and empowerment, and is dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding and critical reflection on the intelligent urban revolution.

Leading with the example, every year we execute the Towards Zero Waste initiative, to reduce waste and increase the efficient use of resources during all the event. Our Towards Inclusivity initiative ensures that the event is accessible and a voice for everyone on it, and the Smart City Lab aims to spread and expand the debate on smart cities.

The last Smart City Expo World Congress concluded with a success in numbers, more than 21,000 visitors, more than 700 cities attended the event, 844 exhibitors, 146 countries and 60 parallel events. Singapore received the 2018 Smart City Award for its Smart Nation project, for its plan to become a global reference point for smart urban solutions relieving previous winners such as New York and Dubai.

 

 

Why to attend?

 

The objective of Smart City Expo World Congress 2020 is to be the meeting point to encourage all interested, from the technology industries to policy makers and entrepreneurs, to participate in dynamic actions to allow a sustainable and inclusive grow up future.

To this purpose, the event will focus on five main points to board the most pressing problems that cities face: digital transformation, urban environment, mobility, governance and finance of inclusive and shared cities. This approach, together with an extended exhibition area full of real solutions and networking points, is expected to exceed 2019 figures and strengthen the smart community worldwide.

Parallel events such as the Smart Mobility Congress, the Circular Economy European Summit, the Sharing Cities Summit and the Digital Future Society Summit will also contribute to this main objective. Do not miss the opportunity to master smart initiatives to live better. Do not be afraid to dream and join other visionaries to transform apparently impossible futures into real and prosperous cities.

The 2019 edition once again features frontline speakers such as Janette Sadik-Khan (Transportation Director - Blommerang), Roland Busch (Deputy Director General and CTO - Siemens) or Laura Tenenbaum (Scientific Communicator and Climate Change - NASA) among others, with which you can ensure the high level expected.

The availability of the taxi is indicated by a green light on the outside of the car (green light on means is free for a service) On the other hand, all taxis have a taximeter and offer the possibility of card payment.
