City as a Platform present at Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona

Updated: Nov 18



We close the year with our presence at the biggest event for smart cities in the world, Smart City Expo World Congress. The event happened on November 15, 16, and 17 in Barcelona.


Smart City Expo World Congress gathers leaders from the most innovative companies, governments, and organizations in the smart city ecosystem. The event brings over 20,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors.


City as a Platform and Focus BC were invited to participate in the event by Vila Nova de Famalicão. Find out more about the work we've been doing in Famalicão by reading our recent case study.



We had our own booth in the Smart Portugal area, which is a collaboration between NOVA IMS and AICEP. Many Portuguese municipalities and companies were in this area and City as a Platform was showcased there. Our platform gives cities control and visualization of their territories and public services.



Our Managing Partner, Vasco Pinheiro, gave a presentation about City as a Platform at Smart Portugal and he also participated in a panel named "Portugal Makes Sense". The panel was moderated by Miguel Neto, Dead of NOVA IMS - Information Management School. Vasco was accompanied by:

  • Paulo Simões, Executive Secretary of OESTE CIM

  • Luís Matoso Martinho, Executive Secretary of CIM Viseu, Dão e Lafões

  • Jorge Patricio, B2B Commercial Manager at Altice

  • Ana Pereira, Dissemination Manager at Ubiwhere

  • Catarina Selada - Head of Policy at CEiiA
