Smart City Expo World Congress 2021

From November 16 to 18, Barcelona will host the unmissable event for all companies with innovative ideas, products or services that are useful or even essential for the development of the cities of tomorrow: the Smart City Expo World Congress! Join our three-regional face-to-face stand and exhibit the best of your projects and realizations and make promising contacts!

Smart City Expo World Congress is the world’s largest trade fair in the field of smart cities. In 2019, it brought together more than 25,000 professional visitors, 1,000 exhibitors, 400 speakers and represented 700 cities.

This fair is a real platform for exchanges about the future of the cities of tomorrow and enjoys great media visibility. This year again, the fair will take place in a hybrid form (face-to-face fair and digital platform of Smart City Live, tomorrow city) and will cover various sectors, such as:

  • Energy and environment,
  • Governance,
  • Mobility,
  • Infrastructure and structures/buildings,
  • Economy,
  • Security
  • etc…

It offers participants a unique opportunity to meet the professionals of urban innovation, get in touch with government organizations, municipalities, SMEs, start-ups, etc., and forge partnerships at an international level.

3 days to position yourself at the heart of the development of Smart Cities

This year we will physically take you to the heart of the fair, on our common stand, where you will have the opportunity to:

  • present your products and services to the key players in the sector;
  • participate in conferences and workshops;
  • draw inspiration from the latest trends and innovations in the development of smart cities;
  • benefit from our logistical support throughout the fair;
  • to dispose of individual commercial support with our economic and commercial representative in Barcelona if you wish.

In addition, take advantage of our Brokerage Event, a free support during the 3 days, offered by our Enterprise Europe Network in collaboration with ACCIÓ, and benefit from pre-programmed meetings on site and/or online.

Don’t wait too long, we operate on a first-come, first-served basis!
