Smart City Expo World Congress 2015

The Smart City Expo World Congress will take place from 17th-19th November in Barcelona, Spain. This event welcomes companies and experts from around the world to gather and share ideas for smart cities.

A ‘smart city’ is one in which digital technologies are employed to make its public services more efficient, such as public transport, water supply networks, waste disposal facilities and lighting/heating methods, with a focus on reducing the impact on resources and having less impact on the environment.

Smart City events provide a space for innovative people to come up with solutions to the challenges faced in modern urban areas. The aim is to create a more livable and sustainable society. A similar Smart City Expo took place in Kyoto from the 20th – 22nd May 2015. It dealt with the latest developments in technology across Asia.

The Smart City Expo is a brilliant chance for individuals and businesses to gain insight, knowledge and guidance from industry experts, to network and build partnerships and to promote companies, projects, brands or cities. There will also be innovative speakers and interesting panel discussions each day.

Fees for the event are charged per day and vary according to visitors and exhibitors. To learn more, please check out the website and to register, click here.
