Business for Smart Cities Expo Congress
Park Road 16a
About the event
Expo – Congress “Business for Smart Cities” (BSC) is an annual global event which gathers the leaders of the region and international experts to address solutions to the problems of their cities, and find the most appropriate partners to develop innovative projects and services.
BSC is neither a conference nor a typical discussion event. It is a platform for decision makers of big global firms and other global businesses, and city leaders to find partners and solutions to their challenges by application of the Smart Cities concept. It also provides an opportunity for start-ups, and small and medium enterprises to identify investors and create projects of common interest. The investors may discover attractive options for providing high-return funding.
The event has gathered about 2000 participants and 140 speakers from 30 countries, including:
- 26 representatives of international organizations (EBRD, IFC, Global Infrastructure Hub, UNECE, HABITAT, UN Global Compact),
- 49 representatives of public authorities,
- 65 representatives of private business.
Expo – Congress was visited by delegations of 12 embassies of foreign countries in Ukraine, in particular: Austria, Azerbaijan, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Hungary, Japan, USA.
The exhibition included stands of foreign and Ukrainian companies and Ukrainian cities.
