From 19th to 21st November, we will be taking part in the world’s largest event for cities, the Smart City Expo World Congress. Describing its purpose as ‘to empower cities and collectivise urban innovation across the globe’, the expo features exhibitors from around the world, all of whom are leaders in the smart city and urban planning industries. 

The expo is held in Barcelona, which is a city with a consistent track record of capitalising on new technologies and concepts such as the Internet of Things and has been described by the Financial Times as having ‘a reputation for being at the forefront of urban technological innovation’.

We will be in attendance as part of the Italian pavilion, presenting Planet’s unique proposition through our stall with particular emphasis placed on the role of our digital services, such as the Planet App.

Having been recognised by Fortune Italia earlier this year as one of the 20 top start-ups in the country, Planet is looking forward to presenting our ideas and successes in the context of peers and fellow smart cities industry leaders.

This year’s event is centred around social inclusion and sustainability, concepts which we already place at the heart of our methodology and which are thus reflected in the smart solutions we offer.

More than twenty thousand participants passed through the doors of last year’s expo, so our presence represents an important opportunity for us to reach both market stakeholders and interested parties from the media and elsewhere. According to figures provided by Smart City Expo, 60% of attendees can be classed as decision-makers so we look forward to capitalising on subsequent networking opportunities
