Rural areas in 2040

Dubai is one of the most forward-thinking, technologically advanced cities in the world. A man­made marvel, it is no surprise that Dubai is on its way to becoming a model smart city. Besides smart cities, we must, however, also consider the smaller players: Smart Villages. Embracing technological advancements are the way of the future and can have a significant impact on rural and remote communities. In this two-part event, major global industry players come together with high-level European institution representatives and national politicians, for an insightful debate on the opportunities and challenges of smart villages, followed by a three-dimensional, holographic presentation of their vision for smart villages. The event will be also live-streamed online.
