The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) has partnered with the organizers of Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), Fira de Barcelona to launch Smart City Expo Doha (SCE Doha). The event will take place between 30th October– 31st October 2019 at Qatar IT Conference & Exhibition 2019 (QITCOM 2019), under the theme, ‘Safe, Smart Cities’.
Smart City Expo is a global platform committed to promote awareness and understanding of smart cities and the development of smart initiatives for a sustainable future. Fira de Barcelona has previously hosted several editions of the Smart City Expo in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe.
Smart City Expo Doha, in its first edition in Qatar, aims to introduce innovative technologies to enhance the lives of citizens, residents and visitors through social inclusion, sustainability and empowerment.
“Regionally and globally, Qatar has been on the frontlines of a major digital transformation towards safe smart cities. This has been proved to be true as the policy briefs issued by the Arab Monetary Fund showing that 43% of Qatar cities are smart cities. We believe that this event will be the biggest of its kind, as it will enrich the society with expertise from the global speakers and showcase Qatar’s efforts in creating an intelligent community via seamlessly integrating all economic sectors. As a knowledge-sharing platform for smart city ecosystems, the event aims to mediate conversations that will equip society for a digital future and promote a better understanding of Safe Smart Cities”, further added Her Excellency Reem Al Mansoori.
Smart City Expo Doha will drive conversations around intelligent technologies and highlight the challenges towards building and enhancing smart cities. For more information about Smart City Expo Doha, pleas visit the following website: http://smartcityexpodoha.com/.
