News about the Smart City Expo 2021

The organizers of the event have adapted the format of the congress to the new global reality, thus creating a new hybrid experience in which Smart City Expo World Congress 2021 will mix face-to-face events with digital connections and interactive broadcasts. These changes will not only allow reaching new audiences but will also enrich the character of the event with global participation.

This year's edition will have two fundamental pillars at its core: sustainability and inclusion. The first of them will deal mainly with the objectives of reducing the waste generated to zero, something that is to be achieved from the same organization and realization of the event; the second pillar aims to interconnect everyone through technology, making everyone's voices heard.
