Redefining Smart

Smart City Expo World Congress

First and Only U.S. Edition

 

Smart City Expo Atlanta is the only U.S. edition of Smart City Expo World Congress, the world’s leading conference and expo on smart cities and smart urban solutions.

 

Hosted annually in Barcelona since 2011, Smart City Expo World Congress has globally expanded to Brazil, Turkey, Japan, Mexico and Argentina, and now to the U.S through Smart City Expo Atlanta.

In 2018 Barcelona welcomed:

21,000+ Attendees

700+ Cities

800+ Exhibitions

400+ Speakers

                  

At Smart City Expo Atlanta, members of the U.S. public sector, innovators, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and industry leaders will discuss how social and economic mobility, equitable infrastructure, and human capital are being prioritized in the new “smart city,” one defined by digital transformation, artificial intelligence, early-stage investments, and other civic innovations and solutions.

I am thrilled to welcome Fira de Barcelona to host the first U.S.-based Smart City Expo in Atlanta. The focus on cutting-edge technologies, smart city innovation, and equity and inclusion directly align with our One Atlanta vision of affordability, resiliency, and fairness.

Our thriving public-private partnerships make our city the ideal backdrop for the meaningful collaboration and global ideation that will take place at Smart City Expo Atlanta. As we work to provide limitless solutions to some of the country’s most pressing concerns, we look forward to hosting cross-sector leaders from around the globe to this internationally-recognized summit.
