According to Datamix, the event organiser, the conference will cover all aspects of smart city development, including fire prevention, public safety, and the changing role of municipalities.

Event participants will also discuss investment strategies, smart transportation and mobility, and threats to social stability, with the aim of improving infrastructure, increase sustainability, and enhance resilience, Datamix added.

In a statement, the organiser said that the event will provide “a premier platform for knowledge exchange and peer-to-peer engagement, as well as a central platform for the interchange of best cases and business deals, bringing together the highest level of stakeholders.
