The Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona is the world’s largest meeting place within the Smart City arena. It brings together 800 exhibitors and over 21.000 participants from businesses and cities from all around the world.
In 2018, more than 150 Norwegian and 450 Nordic delegates participated in the seminars, round-tables, matchmaking and networking events – and 32 cities and companies from the Nordics were exhibiting! The Pavilion had visits from delegations and representatives from across the globe, including the US, Spain, Australia and South Korea. Top executives from international companies also met with many of the Nordic delegates. For the first time, we also had Nordic city presenters at the official congress organized by FIRA.

This year, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland will combine forces to set up a common Nordic pavilion, with an exclusive program for exhibitors, partners and clients. The joint participation is supported by Nordic Innovation.
Why the Nordics?
The Nordic region enjoys a very strong brand globally, especially when it comes to quality of life in cities. Key words such as technology, sustainability, trust and happiness have strong connotations to our region. By working together in a Nordic context on a global scene, you will make a stronger footprint towards the world. Based on feedback from previous years, we also know that the intra-Nordic network and collaboration has been a valuable output.
Who should attend as an exhibitor on the pavilion, and why?
We will give a particular focus to topics like citizens involvement, public-private partnership and technology. Nordic solutions within areas such as Mobility, Digital Transformation, Smart Water and Waste, Urban Environment and Citizens Involvement are highly relevant for the Expo.
Value for Companies:
An opportunity to promote your business to a global audience. To create new partnerships and collaboration at a Nordic and global level. Build your brand. Connect directly with decision makers in cities. Expand your knowledge horizon. It is relevant for companies of all sizes- start-ups, SME's and large companies. The important thing is that you have a solution ready to present to an international market.
Value for cities & regions:
Storytelling, branding, networking and inspiration. By attending, a city can promote pilots, companies and technologies from the region. It is also an arena to attract talent and resources to the city. And finally, this is an important arena to develop international networks, EU projects and general best practice sharing with cities from all over the globe. Nordic Cities should attend with political and administrative leaders at a high level.
