Smart City Expo World Congress exists in order to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation across the globe. Through promoting social innovation, establishing partnerships and identifying 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 provides a unique meeting point for the whole smart city ecosystem. Corporate leaders, public representatives, entrepreneurs, experts and academics from all around the globe come together to learn from each other, share experiences, talk about best practices, and open new paths for international collaboration.
The event is based around the values of social inclusion, sustainability and empowerment, and is dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding and critical reflection on the smart urban revolution.
Leading by example, every year we run the Towards Zero Waste initiative to reduce waste and increase efficient use of resources across the event. Our Towards Inclusivity initiative ensures the event is accessible and that everyone has a voice here, and the Smart City Lab aims to spread and widen the debate on smart cities.
A new format for a new era
Over the years, SCEWC has grown into much more than a three-day event. By creating and nurturing an international innovation community, sparking cross-sectoral conversations, forging and fostering partnerships, and building a platform to share knowledge, we’ve developed a groundbreaking model of advocacy for a better urban world. And we plan to keep on doing so.
For the first time this year, to celebrate a powerful 10th anniversary, SCEWC will be a hybrid experience, with the physical event coming back to Barcelona and a parallel digital program broadcast by Tomorrow.City. We’re moving into our next decade with a new, cross-platform approach and a widened community – and we want you to be part of it.
