SMART CITY WORLD EXPO BARCELONA 2022

Where the global smart city eco-system meets to establish new relations and new projects.

The Confederation of Danish Industry in collaboration with The Royal Danish Embassy in Madrid, State of Green, We Build Denmark and Bloxhub invites you to take part in the Nordic Pavilion, where Danish businesses will have the opportunity to showcase smart city solutions, exchange know-how and establish new partnerships.

THE SMART CITY MARKET

The global market for smart city solutions is continuing to grow with various analyses forecasting a global growth of 22 per cent annually until 2026. Cities around the world are seeking digital solutions and technologies to support the development of current community related problems arising from among other, increasing urbanization.

Here, Danish companies will have the opportunity to showcase their sustainable and technological solutions to the smart city market at one of the most recognized pavilions at the fair, the Nordic Pavilion. Denmark already has a well-established reputation of applying digital solutions to create sustainable and well-functioning cities with a high quality of life. However, Danish companies have yet to grasp the opportunity to play a leading role within the international smart city sector. Participating at the Danish Pavilion may, therefore become a catalyst for further development and integration into the smart city market.
