Smart City Expo World Congress exists in order to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation across the globe. Through promoting social innovation, establishing partnerships and identifying business opportunities, the event is dedicated to creating a better future for cities and their citizens worldwide.
As the world’s leading event for cities, Smart City Expo World Congress provides a unique meeting spot for smart city sectors and an innovative platform for urban action worldwide.
The event is based around the values of social inclusion and empowerment and is dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding and critical reflection between inhabitants of different cities worldwide, all in a climate of mutual respect and caring. Sustainability is a top priority, with the Towards Zero Waste initiative aiming to reduce waste and increase efficient use of resources across the event.
Smart City Expo World Congress’ objective is to work towards creating efficient, inclusive and sustainable cities. Hence, the show should lead by example. In 2017, for the third year running, the event prompted the Towards Zero Waste initiative, aimed at reducing residual waste, saving resources and ensuring maximum sustainability. Attendees response was sizable and resounding.
The initiative, which returns in 2018, is in line with the European Commission’s Circular Economy strategy based on use of less materials, reuse and recycling of products, and no food waste.
