Date: 11 – 13 March 2015
Frequency: Annual
Organizer: Via Expo
Venue: Sofia, Inter Expo Center
 
The focus of ‘Smart Cities’ Exhibition and Conference will be on intelligent transport, building management and automation, ICT technology implementation in the overall urban activity.

Today, 80 % of the Europeans live in cities. They occupy only about 2% of the land area, but they consume 75% of resources and emit 80% CO2. It is really important to change the way we consume and produce.  The intelligent vision of the cities can be a reality through wider introduction of advanced solutions. ‘Smart Cities’ will identify the path towards the sustainable urban development in South-East Europe.

It will attract representatives of institutions, municipalities, branch organizations, private companies, providing interactivity and networking between them.

We kindly invite you to become a part of ‘Smart Cities’ - an excellent opportunity to showcase your products, to start new joint business projects, to share your  experience.
