Barcelona will host the next chapter of the Smart City Expo World Congress from November 13 to 15, where Ferrovial Services will participate as a Global Partner with its stand, IN Cities.
This year’s theme, “Cities to live in,” strives to bring the role of cities as hubs of innovation, knowledge, conduits of economic growth, prosperity, and well-being of citizens to the forefront. A chapter that aspires to become a round success with more participation and top-ranking presentations at the international level.
Ferrovial Services with IN Cities (Stand D449) will share their latest tangible solutions for local communities, like Hefesto, a software developed in order to optimize energy efficiency; Zity, one of the main car-sharing solutions in Madrid; Revive, the digital platform created in collaboration with various local governments so that citizens reuse second-hand objects; or Hasavi, Ferrovial’s own health and wellness program, all this through a completely experiential hub where attendees will be able to immerse themselves as project leaders.
