This year, FIRA organises the road to Smart City Live. This online edition is an alternative to the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona. Smart City Live is about what is available now, and current tenders open in cities. This event focusses on developing the innovation system within Europe and cooperation at an early stage when developing solutions for city challenges.

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to host the event online this year.

The event will be held on Monday 2 November, Monday 9 November and Monday 16 November. Join our workshops and listen to keynotes. The European Enterprise Network will organise matchmaking. Also, there will be a possibility for startups to pitch to investors.

It will be a great opportunity for investors with a smart city focus to find investment opportunities.

Let's continue last year's success

The event builds on the success from last year when it was hosted in Barcelona at the Smart City World Expo. Last year, 500 participants from all over the world joined in. The feedback was very positive, and participants appreciated the action-oriented and interactive workshops and matchmaking possibilities. Since the event last year, many new international partnerships have been formed, and great progress is being made.
