Since 2011, Smart City Expo World Congress gathers leaders from the most innovative companies, governments, and organizations to move cities towards a better future. The goal is to collectivize urban innovation across the globe and empower cities to face the critical challenges the world faces today. The event mission is to accelerate a brighter urban paradigm towards green, efficient and thriving cities that leave no one behind.

The Smart City Expo 2023 will show the world the smart solutions shaping this new era—those currently helping cities thrive and creating safer, greener, and more efficient urban spaces. It will also discuss the challenges new developments pose with an innovative event layout where debate and actual use cases will be combined in the same area. The 2023 edition will be the biggest to date and will see the return in full force of the urban innovation ecosystem.
