Doha will host the third edition of the region’s leading urban innovation event, Smart City Expo Doha (SCE Doha) under the motto ‘A World of Data: Connecting People, Elevating Lives’. The event will be held on 29-30 November at Al Bidda Park, within the International Horticultural Exhibition, Expo 2023 Doha.  

The event will lead the debate on sustainable urban development and the importance of data in building smarter, more liveable cities.

Organised by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), SCE Doha is an event of Smart City Expo World Congress and Fira Barcelona International. It will feature more than 70 speakers, with over 100 countries represented along with 40 companies and organisations.

Smart and sustainable urban innovation

The centrepiece of Smart City Expo Doha 2023 will be a conference featuring experts, including Urban AI Founder and CEO Renée Cummings, Government of Estonia’s Chief Data Officer Ott Velsberg, and Strategy Advisor and International Smart City Ambassador in The Netherlands, Frans-Anton Vermast.

The speakers will share their vision on four main themes – Green Urban Environments, Digital Governance, Cognitive Cities, and Liveable Places.

The 40 companies, partners and sponsors will present their new products and solutions in the field of urban innovation, both at the congress and in the networking space to foster commercial relations, professional contacts and business opportunities between participating companies and visitors.

Smart City Expo Doha is part of the internationalisation strategy of Smart City Expo World Congress, the world’s leading exhibition on smart cities and urban solutions organised annually by Fira de Barcelona. Its 13th edition was held last November, with foreign editions also held in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, the United States, Mexico and China.
