ECOMM 2021 moves to online

ECOMM 2021 will take place. Join us online, live streamed from Cascais in Portugal on the 24th and 25th of November.
How to ensure affordability, accessibility and safety for all? Which strategies must be employed to reduce the need to travel? How to implement mobility hubs to induce co-mobility and shared mobility, integrating several modes of transport as well as creating urban spaces and greener environments? How to afford Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems?
Considering the necessary deep changes in economy, society, policy, environment and technology, our future depends on the lessons we will learn from the moment we are living today and ECOMM 2021 wants to actively encourage the discussion and exchange on the Beginning of a New Era at European level.

The Major Cities of Europe conference has been a fixture on the calendar for over thirty years and is recognised as the pre-eminent European conference focused on leading edge transformation and technological innovation in local government.

Whilst in 2022 the city of Larissa, Greece will host our conference in person, the pandemic means that in 2021 a virtual event is the only option. It is the must-attend event for anyone interested in using technology to build smarter and liveable cities. We will be exploring digital transformation, the contribution technology can make to sustainability, and how to effectively manage cybersecurity threats, examining both today’s good practice and the leadership and competences to take us to the next level.

Ecocity World Summit Postponed to 2022

The Ecocity World Summit leadership has made the difficult decision to convert the Onsite and Online Ecocity 2021 World Summit to a fully virtual conference. Based on careful monitoring of conditions in The Netherlands, the neighboring countries of our participants, and in discussions with local health authorities, we have concluded that COVID-19 infections are not likely to abate before the conference’s original dates.
It is out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our participants, speakers, exhibitors and staff that we have reached the difficult decision to transition the conference to a fully virtual Summit on the new dates of 22nd – 24th of February 2022.
