Under the theme Cities Made of Dreams the show and congress will reflect on the transformation that metropolises have experienced in the past decade, how many solutions that seemed sheer daydreaming back then are now reality and how we have the tools turn more dreams into reality in the near future.

It will alsocover topics such as Data-driven Cities, 5G and the future of Connectivity, Resilient Cities, Gentrification, Innovative Transport Systems, Multilevel Governance, Sharing and Collaborative Economy, Circular Economy and Cities for All.
