PICKS OF THE WEEK #42

See you next year, Smart City Expo

It's over. The Smart City Expo World Congress was celebrated last week in a hybrid format for the first time. We were honored to produce its Digital Program, and we're still quite excited to have gathered such a large number of corporate and public leaders from around the globe. We broadcast 3 days of talks and dialogues on the city we want for tomorrow, and we're happy to offer it on-demand in the platform - for free!

So long, Smart City Expo. See you in 2022. Meanwhile, the action continues at Tomorrow.City.
