The event, which in just five years has become a world leader dedicated to Smart Cities, will be attended by ZABALA Innovation as an exhibiting company

Smart City Expo World Congress 2021 will be held in a multi-platform hybrid format from 16-18 November, with the intention of being a brokerage event between industry leaders and stakeholders. As every year, it will attract the main national and international representatives of the sector. It will feature more than 300 speakers with expertise in smart cities, partnerships, mobility, sustainability, urban planning, etc.

The main themes will be enabling technologies, energy and environment, tomorrow’s mobility, governance and economy, living and inclusion, infrastructure and buildings, and finally safety and security.

Once again, the differentiating element of the event will be the Smart City Plaza, a space of almost 2,000 square meters where the most innovative solutions will be on display.

Our participation will be realised thanks to the collaboration with Microsoft, one of the most important exhibitors. Therefore, we encourage everyone to visit our stand and have B2B meetings with our experts to learn about recovery and resilience funds and EU programmes as sources of funding for Smart Cities.
