/ Smart City Expo Barcelona 2019

Join us at the world's largest smart city exhibition and conference! More than ever, what happens in cities is shaping our world. The challenges we face are enormous, and only by working together will we be able to tackle them.

Over the next decades, the continued urbanization and global growth of the world's population is expected to lead to a large growth in cities. All regions of the world are expected to urbanize further, especially in Asia and Africa, where the fastest growing cities are located.

The world is becoming even more interdependent and cities need to interact across borders to tackle common challenges: population growth, climate change, traffic congestion and pollution, lack of adequate and affordable housing, education and health among many other pressing issues.

The Smart City Expo in Barcelona is about these challenges, but also about the huge opportunities they offer for innovative business.

Greater Stavanger invites innovative Norwegian businesses to Smart City Expo, and you can join! Busines Region Kristiansand is a good partner to Greater Stavanger, which gives the opportunity for companies from Southern Norway to participate.
