Our 2020 Experience

A place for reflection and collaboration

In November 2020, over 40 experts and speakers from around the world gathered virtually for the Smart City Experience 2020. As they engaged directly with participants, each expert shared their different experiences related to designing smart cities. One of the main objectives of the event was to examine the different elements that make up the smart city model in order to promote local innovation and better plan the next steps in our urban environments.

4 Urban Innovation Workshops

In 2020 we launched our series of 4 Urban Innovation workshops that were held during this edition. These experiences are designed to support our participants and partners who are in the process of developing their smart city strategies or projects. The Workshops assemble a group of pre-selected experts related to the theme, providing a unique opportunity for participants to get practical advice, test their ideas and propel their project.

Our Inspiration Stages

Smart cities are part of a global conversation, and we believe in making our content accessible to an international and multilingual community. That’s why, this year, we are offering two main Inspiration Stages, one in French and one in English.

A unique chance to meet and exchange with local, national and international actors who offer an engaging experience that brings together multidisciplinary actors of the smart city ecosystem.

A city is not smart if it does not include everyone.

Exclusive-Learning-Experiences

Our Exclusive Learning Experiences

Some topics deserve to be discussed in depth in a panel discussion or private group led by two recognized experts in their field. Each Exclusive Learning Experience tackles a specific topic related to the development of smart city projects with a group of up to 25 people leaving room to connect with the expert and other participants

Details Coming Soon

Our partners

Smart City Experience works with a community of dedicated partners. Our partners share our belief that it takes an ecosystem of multidisciplinary, and creative people or organizations to help our cities become more innovative, evolve technologically, face the challenges of the future, and make our cities more inclusive.  

We will announce our partners this fall.

For me, a smart city shatters the paradigm of the industrial era.
