Atlanta officials want to help redefine what it means for a city to be “smart.” In partnership with Fira de Barcelona, the City of Atlanta will host Smart City Expo Atlanta (SCATL), the first U.S. edition of the global Smart City Expo World Congress (held annually in Barcelona).
The event and expo will take place September 11 – 13 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Over the course of three days, SCATL will explore social and economic mobility in terms of future technologies and intelligent development. Speakers and workshops will address topics including autonomous, shared, and electric mobility; intelligent and equitable infrastructure; and the power of human and social capital.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms expressed her support for the expo.
“I am thrilled to welcome Fira de Barcelona to host the first U.S.-based Smart City Expo in Atlanta,” said Mayor Bottoms in a statement. “The focus on cutting-edge technologies, smart city innovation, and equity and inclusion directly align with our One Atlanta vision of affordability, resiliency, and fairness.”
The conference is anticipating over 2,500 attendees, 200 speakers, and 50 exhibitors. Confirmed speakers include leaders of the National League of Cities, City Tech Collaborative, the Democratic National Committee, City of Atlanta, Georgia Tech, United Nations, and more.
Delegates and partners will engage with top government officials, industry leaders, and the foremost members of academia and NGOs while experiencing cutting-edge demos at a world-class expo and community day.
