Smart City Expo


Held in Barcelona since 2011, Smart City Expo World Congress is the world’s largest and most influential event for cities and urban innovation. Each year, leaders of the most innovative companies, governments and organizations are brought together to lead cities toward a better future. The goal is to collectivize urban innovation worldwide and empower cities to address the critical challenges facing the world today.

This will be the century of cities

The global population is expected to grow to 10B by 2050, and 70% of these people will live in cities. In 40 years, we will have built as many new cities as in all of human history. The future of humanity is inevitably urban, and digitization stands as an essential, unstoppable revolution to ensure future-proof cities focused on people and the environment. At the crossroads of tech and cities, there’s an opportunity for a more sustainable and equitable world where new business and collaboration models arise. Smart City Expo is the place to catalyze a powerful urban tomorrow worldwide.

Global leaders pushing urban transformation forward

In 2011, the idea was clear: create a space where urban innovators from around the world could meet, learn and share. By having a place to come together, get inspired and exchange opinions, the event became the spark that ignited a global movement toward better urbanism. More than a decade later, Smart City Expo has become the essential meeting point for industry leaders, entrepreneurs, government officials, institutions, experts and academics to shape what comes next for cities.

Much more than a 3-day event

By creating and nurturing an international innovation network, facilitating new partnerships, fostering a sustainable and diverse environment, and building a platform to share knowledge and stay engaged throughout the year, a global, cross-platform community and a pioneering model of advocacy for a better urban world has been developed.
