For the first time, from 14th to 15th September, the city of Miami (USA) will host Smart City Expo USA (SCEUSA), the main event on urban innovation to be held in the country.
Representatives of more than 100 American cities, 200 speakers and more than 50 companies and institutions are expected to focus on the role that technology can play when it comes to mitigating social inequalities in urban areas. This is the second event to be held by Fira in the United States after Smart City Expo Atlanta in 2019.
Organised by Fira de Barcelona in partnership with the National League of Cities and the Association of African-American Mayors, SCEUSA will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center under the motto “Building smart, equitable and sustainable 21st-century cities”.
With the aim of developing municipalities that can contribute to inclusion and reducing the wealth and racial divides by means of the use of technology, the event will bring together 200 specialists who, during about fifty sessions, will share their knowledge and debate major challenges, such as future mobility adapted to the present moment, the solutions that technology can offer in the fight against climate change and alleviating the effects of increasingly common heatwaves, the civic commitment of the digital city, electrification and the green and fair energy transition and the contribution that can be made by the so-called unicorns, venture capital funds and startups to the shift from traditional cities in smart cities.
The participants will include members of the Department of State and Commerce of the US Government, the Environmental Agency and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Intergovernmental Affairs area of the White House and the Bank of the United States, among many others. As municipal representatives, the mayors of Miami, Miami Beach, Cleveland, New Orleans, Denver, Oklahoma, Saint Louis and Cincinnati will take part.
SCEUSA will also have an exhibition area, which will be attended by more than 50 companies and institutions showcasing products and services that can lead to a narrowing of the current inequalities that exist among the population living in urban areas of the country.

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
In the event world, it’s simply part of life if things don’t work out as planned.
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
