Buenos Aires, is well on the way to being a smart city
The city will host an international exhibition with a theme that excites everyone: how to use technology to improve the quality of life in cities for its citizens?
Buenos Aires is fully involved in the transformation to become on of the worlds smart cities: from 28 to 30 September it will be the venue for an international exhibition on one of the most recurrent themes of the day. Smart City Expo BA 2017, which will be held at the new Exhibition and Convention Center located in Figueroa Alcorta and Pueyrredón. Smart City Expo BA 2017 is the name of the local version of an event that first began to be organized in 2011 in Barcelona but which soon expanded to other cities around the world. It is a meeting point in which municipalities and companies share ideas and solutions in technology and innovation to address the major urban challenges and make cities sustainable spaces with a better quality of life.
Through a series of activities such as conferences, lectures, workshops, interactive experiences, prototype exhibitions and workshops, among others, who attend the Smart City Expo in Buenos Aires will be able to learn how cities today address issues such as sustainability, digital innovation and economic development, equity, government transparency and adaptation to continuous change. On those five axes, which could be summarized with the idea of making the future accessible to all, will present their proposals and achievements to different governments, municipalities, companies, universities, and research centers.
All power to the citizen
Experts of the future do not doubt: beyond the technological imprint that the concept of a smart city has, today it is better explained as a way of building or strengthening citizenship. If the transformation is in the neighborhood of a city, it is essential to put the most innovative technologies and solutions at your fingertips so that you can think about how to replicate them locally and improve the quality of life. The intelligent management of cities is a key element of the future. An efficient, modern and sustainable administration has concrete benefits in people’s lives.
With the Expo Smart City BA 2017, Buenos Aires will begin to think of Buenos Aires as a city with all the potential to set a trend in South America. Buenos Aires will can continue to position itself as a regional and global reference for progress.
Free but you will need accreditation
The exhibition will have a general hall, with space for a thousand people in which international speakers will speak, two smaller rooms and other spaces for workshops. It will be open to the public from 10.00 to 19.00 and entrance is free, but since it is an exhibition space with limited capacity it requires you to get an earlier accreditation.
