Smart City World Congress

Smart City Expo World Congress started back in 2011 with a vision, questioning whether smart initiatives could make sustainable cities flourish. Not because it was a nice thing to do but because environmental footprints were quite alarming. We have come a long way since 2011 and the smart city opportunity has become a reality

Stakeholders are moving from small proof-of-concept projects to smart implementation at scale. 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.

The future is not far-off anymore, the future is now. Cities have become socio-economic and political actors on national and world stages. Yet we need to keep on exploring new paths, reinventing places and scenarios, drawing new cartographies of imagination.

Smart City Expo World Congress 2019 aims to be the meeting point to encourage all the stakeholders, ranging from technology industries through to policy-makers and entrepreneurs, to engage in dynamic action to enable a sustainable and inclusive future to take hold.

To this end, the event will focus on five main tracks touching on the most pressing issues facing cities: Digital Transformation, Urban Environment, Mobility, Governance & Finance, and Inclusive & Sharing Cities. This approach, together with an extended exhibition area packed with real solutions and networking spots, is expected to outnumber 2018 figures and strengthen the smart community all over the world.

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 major objective. Don't miss the opportunity to master smart initiatives for better living. Don't be afraid to dream and join other visionaries in transforming seemingly impossible futures into real, thriving cities.

EnergyVille will have a booth at the Flemish Pavillion of Flanders Investment & Trade.
