Last week we participated in the annual Smart City conference “Smart City Expo” held in Barcelona from 15-17 november 2016. The Expo is one of the world’s biggest and most inspiring conferences about the newest technologies and solutions within smart city.
This year a total of 591 exhibitors, 600+ cities, 16.000+ visitors and 420 speakers took part of the conference. The theme was “Cities for Citizens” to spark conversations about how the involvement of citizens can play a more vital role in cities’ digital solutions and future development. An important issue, since a smart city is only smart if its people perceive it smart. Hopefully this aspect will only be more dominant in upcoming conferences, talks etc about smart city!
