Smart City Expo World Congress 2019
Attending Smart City Expo World Congress allows us to showcase the opportunities that Leeds City Region has to offer to 'transform lives with tech'.
Delegates from the private and public sector will once again be given the opportunity to attend the annual smart cities expo – that will be held in Barcelona this November - to showcase the scale of opportunities available within the UK’s largest city region economy outside of London.
Last year the Smart City Expo World Congress attracted over 20,000 delegates and gave our largest ever public and private sector delegation the platform to present to and network with international smart tech solution providers.
Our digital sector is going through a period of unprecedented growth, contributing £6.5 billion to the national economy with the fastest tech scale up rate in the North. We want this growth to benefit everyone who lives in our region and to transform lives with technology.
Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership manages the City Region presence at Smart City Expo World Congress 2019, driving economic growth and investment opportunities to an international audience of tech decision makers and investors.
