The event par excellence that the promoters of sustainable cities expect.
The Smart City Expo World Congress has a clear objective, the exchange of experiences and the impulse of joint initiatives between the participating cities in Barcelona.
Nearly 500 cities around the world will gather at the Smart City Expo World Congress to address different challenges in urban transformation to ensure the sustainability of our society and which should be implemented.
The issue of sustainability is an aspect that should be increasingly taken into account. Cities responsible for the environment to create a more aware society.
