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.
