Any chance you’ll be heading for the Smart City Expo World Congress this week at the Fira Gran Vía?
The three-day event kicks off Tuesday and while you are there, one of the many things you may want to do is to take a few moments to stop by the “Smart Innovation Zone” in Hall 2 and meet some of the 18 Barcelona- and Catalunya-based companies that will be exhibiting there under the auspices of the Ajuntament’s Barcelona Activa and the Generalitat’s Acc10 agencies.
Among the local exhibitors in the Smart Innovation Zone, you’ll find:
