More about Nordic Smart Cities in Sweden (20-24 October)

 

Come and meet us at Nordic Smart Cities in Malmö !

Nordic Smart Cities is the leading regional event for smart and sustainable city development, gathering 1000+ attendees over the course of two days. It is a great opportunity for companies to put their brand at the forefront of the minds of city leaders, planners, architects and developers. Many cities and regions across the Nordics have aggressive CO2 reduction plans – with some of them planning to be carbon neutral by as early as 2025. In order to achieve these targets there will have to be a change in mindset and behavior from city halls, citizens, industry and business – without the 4 working closely together such targets will surely be missed.

After 3 successful years in Stockholm Nordic Smart Cities is moving to Malmö for 2018. Malmö is Sweden’s third largest and most diverse city, it is also part of the Greater Copenhagen area “the 79 municipalities in Greater Copenhagen are home to 4 million inhabitants and Scandinavia’s largest recruitment base of highly-skilled employees”.

Malmö has set the ambitious target of running on 100% renewable energy by 2030 – such a target cannot be achieved without the implementation of smart and sustainable technologies across the
city. Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, the Mayor of Malmö will be opening Nordic Smart Cities 2018 – outlining the strategies and plans that Malmö are putting in place now to enable the city to meet its renewable energy target.

The event itself will take place at Malmömässan, the largest exhibition arena in the city and a part of the recent developments in the Hyllie area of the city. Just 25 minutes on the train from Copenhagen airport Hyllie is the largest development zone in the city and is leading the way towards long-term sustainability – by as early as 2020 the area will run on 100% renewable energy.

As we previously said, Smartnodes will of course be present at the event and we hope that, taking all of this into account, you will be many to visit the 4th edition of Nordic Smart Cities! We look forward to see you on our stand C4.

Nordic Smart Cities conference offers you the opportunity to hear from 70+ speakers across 4 stages with over 1200 minutes of content and networking – it is an action packed 2 days that will not fail to disappoint. Whether you are interested in hearing from politicians, smart city project leaders, academia or industry then you have to come. There will also be many other exhibitors present.
