Since the global pandemic is still impacting our daily lives, the Smart City Expo team and Fira
Since the global pandemic is still impacting our daily lives, the Smart City Expo team and Fira de Barcelona are finding a new way to reconnect all the industry actors and rebuild ecosystems to accelerate a much-needed recovery. This year we are transforming ourselves into an online event: Smart City Live, a one-shot, innovative edition happening digitally on November 17 – 18, 2020, that will maintain the event quality and international scope that we are known for while putting our participants’ safety first.
The new Smart City Live will consist of a full-day, broadcast television show on day one, with interviews, debates, and success stories focusing on how COVID-19 has impacted cities and is redefining citizens’ normality, plus a program on day two featuring workshops, sessions, and side events, which will gather key players and global institutions to tackle the challenges beyond the short-term impact of the pandemic.
Along with Smart City Live, we will see the kick-off of the first Tomorrow.City initiatives. Our global platform of platforms that combines research, technology, and investment 365 days a year will, in the coming months, launch a capacity-building platform, a radar exploring disruptive technologies, and a podcast series reflecting on the new ‘smart’ for cities.
november 17 (Tuesday) - 18 (Wednesday)
