The sixth international edition of the Smart City Event to be held at the Amsterdam ArenA on June 8th and 9th 2016.

The Smart City Event returns again, following the international acclaim and popularity the conference has seen in the past several years. With Amsterdam Smart City as an official host, the event will span three days and include smart excursions, keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and much more. Smart City Event brings together international stakeholders involved in the development and roll-out of Smart City technologies. These include municipalities and local governments, as well as established tech companies and new innovative startups (to learn more about the participants, click here).

Among the attendees of this year’s edition are representatives of PwC, Heineken, Accenture, Huawei, BMW Nederland, and DNV GL, to name but a few. Dutch municipalities will be showing up in force (we’ve counted at least 14 of them on the list), including the representatives of the City of Amsterdam and the City of Rotterdam, two of the biggest cities in The Netherlands. International players include City of Lyon, City of San Cugat, City of Ghent, Dublin City Council, London Greater Authority, and Dubai Smart City Office. Furthermore, the stellar list of participants is strengthened by the presence of European Commission, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.

The Smart City Event is known for its hands-on, practical approach. Although there will be plenty of keynote speeches for the conservative visitor, the event will also offer a range of activities such as:

smart excursions to new innovative projects in Amsterdam and Rotterdam (read our recap of the last year’s smart sightseeing here)

– College Tours during which the attendees will be invited to sit down for in-depth discussions with the industry professionals

– roundtable sessions for sharing thoughts about the implementation of Smart City projects

– Smart Bootcamps on the topics of circular economy, security, mobility, and more

Except this, you will be able to check out the new Smart City startups in the Startup ArenA, hang out at the Innovation Zone, meet the businesses from the Finland Pavilion, and network at the WBCSD Café.
