Call for
Speakers 2023

SCEWC 2023

The Smart City Expo World Congress is the leading event for cities, the place where our urban future is discussed and the most impactful ideas brought to stage.

Since its first edition in 2011, it has succeeded in becoming a referential global meeting point for governments, companies, social entrepreneurs and research centers in order to strengthen capacities, increase collaboration and share success cases for supporting the improved development of our cities.

Each year we launch an open call to bring the best minds on stage. The 2022 Call for Speakers was a resounding success, so next year we want to ensure another powerful Congress and continue to spark knowledge and insights.
