bee smart city is proud to continue its partnership with Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona: the world’s leading smart city conference and exhibition. With expected more than 21 000 professional visitors, over 800 exhibitors, along with high level representatives from more than 700 cities and over 420 international speakers, as well as 60+ side events, Smart City Expo World Congress is the place to be this November 19-21.
Leading experts will share their vision of how to build more sustainable and livable urban environments while putting people at the centre of every decision. This event provides a unique meeting point for the whole smart city ecosystem where corporate leaders, public representatives, entrepreneurs, experts and academics from all around the globe come together and open new paths for international collaboration.
“It is an honor to partner with the world’s most important smart city conference and exhibition. We share a common vision of building people-centric smart cities by sharing best practices and proven solutions between cities and in collaboration with solution providers. Sharing best practices has been one of the key necessities postulated at Smart City Expo World Congress in the past year – we efficiently facilitate this transfer with our smart city solution database.”, states Thomas Müller, Managing Partner at bee smart city.
bee smart city has developed the world’s largest ‘Smart City Network & Community’ – a global smart city marketplace with currently 13,300+ members from 170+ countries and more than 660 proven solutions implemented in 1,000+ cities and communities. The free global solution-based network and community facilitates the sharing of best practices among cities and connects solution providers and other experts with cities and municipalities.
Ugo Valenti, Director of Fira Barcelona, states: “We need to put people at the centre of every initiative, project and solution if we want to make our cities better places to live in.” New governance models and new approaches to equity and a circular economy have also emerged along with IoT, Artificial Intelligence, drones, self-driving cars and new forms of micromobility. New ways of processing and distributing information such as blockchain and IOTA have also come into the picture.
Additionally, the Smart Mobility Congress, the Digital Future Society Summit and the Circular Economy European Summit will be held in parallel to the Smart City Expo, thus creating great synergies between the co-located events and contributing to the major objective of creating Cities to Live In.
