Event Profile

  • About the Show

    Future Cities Show was established to support the knowledge developing and breach the gaps in the smart cities eco system encyclopaedia. We have seen that urban areas are rapidly becoming the centre for development and change, and they will also be the hosts that will be housing the vast majority of Earth’s population in the coming decades.

    In tight spaces we need to structure and build clever housing, energy efficient transport and circular waste systems and smart infrastructure to support the inhabitants in their daily lives. Each and every city has different challenges and goals, and we come together at Future Cities Show to share the good examples and clever solutions that might with small tweaks be a huge benefit in other cities around the world.

    Future Cities Show has gained tremendous traction in its two years of existence and we are proud to support Dubai in becoming the World’s smartest and happiest city, and to be the hub both in the Middle East and globally for exchanging the best cases and finest results in smart city development. Sustainability, Innovation and Happiness are our three main pillars because they together stand for the further development towards smarter, happier and economically stabile societies.
