The COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark and is forcing city officials to rethink urban development to adapt to coronavirus risks and fears.
To talk through the variety of ways that cities around the world are coping with this new scenario, Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) will hold an innovative edition under the name Smart City Live (#SCLive2020). Organized by Fira de Barcelona, this year’s summit presents a unique two-day digital experience aimed at providing cities with a global new tool for business and knowledge.
Accurate content will be broadcast from Barcelona to the world through the event’s website and also through social media in a new virtual and interactive format comprising two different blocks. The first (17/11) consists of a full-day live television show with interviews, debates, reports, success cases and parallel sessions. The second (18/11) features online workshops and side events.
The flagship event Smart City Expo World Congress will be back as we knew it before the pandemic in 2021.
