SCEWC 2023: Bringing SaaS Success to Barcelona

Once again, we had the pleasure of heading to Barcelona for the Smart City Expo World Congress 2023. As a long-standing partner of the event, we took the opportunity to unveil our new software-as-a-service solution for cities: the Smart City Toolbox.

While our focus was the promotion of our company and our solutions, the Expo is more than just a sales events: it’s a family reunion. Smart City professionals, thought leaders, solution providers, organisations, and urbanists gather together to exchange information, build new connections, and maintain friendships.

SCECW 2023: Setting a New Standard for Urban Innovation

This year’s event was an absolute success for organisers. SCEWC 2023 was visited by more than 25,300 urban enthusiasts from over 140 countries. This truly international event once again defied expectations and signifies the greater importance of smart urban solutions to help streamline urban services, reduce carbon emissions, and ultimately protect our planet.

We also attended the Smart Country Convention in Berlin, but since I wasn’t there, I can’t comment on the atmosphere and overall impressions of the event. However, both events, especially the one in Barcelona, are considered the pinnacle of smart city initiatives globally. It's been an honour to be part of both of these significant gatherings.
