Days untill the Smart City Event:
The Smart City Event is a 2-day conference which provides the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the world of sustainable innovation. Hear from city and corporate leaders who will share their experiences with implementing successful Smart projects. You can learn about smart grids, big data, lighting, e-mobility, sustainable building, e-health, and more! We have arranged for representatives from more than 15 EU cities to come share their experiences. Amsterdam Smart City has been the official host of the Smart City event for the last 3 years.
Last year more than 350 participants from all over the world took part in the event and shared their knowledge. Inspirational workshops and creative sessions on day 2 give you the opportunity to pose questions to representatives from other cities and companies, and offer the chance to grow your network and make new contacts.
