Held in Barcelona since 2011, Smart City Expo World Congress is the international leading event for cities. Our mission is to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation across the globe. Through promoting social innovation and identifying collaboration opportunities, the event is dedicated to creating a better future for cities and their citizens.
Inspiration is embodied by creative people and meaningful connections. People are the ones who can provide cities with a new reference point of what is possible. People are city changers. Cities are transformed through people.
Last year, the Smart City Expo World Congress celebrated its 10th anniversary with a comeback edition that exceeded all expectations. This year all figures are projected to increase over the forecast horizon, similar to pre-pandemic volume.
With alarming environmental footprints and a lingering health crisis, it’s now more necessary than ever to reflect on how cities can do their part to make the world a better place, to see what measures work well, which don’t, and how to get new ideas to brace for challenging times.
