Our next annual conference will take place in Venice on June 13 and 14, 2019. The Municipality of Venice and Major Cities of Europe are organising the conference in partnership with Venis S.p.A.

For more than 35 years, Major Cities of Europe (www.majorcities.eu) has been engaged in promoting the exchange of experiences among cities about their digital transformation and innovation initiatives. Major Cities of Europe is a non-profit and independent organisation of CIO’s, IT Managers, Smart City leaders, Heads of Departments and Policy Makers of Local Governments. It also includes Universities and other public organisations. More information at MCE value proposition
Our most recent annual conferences were hosted by the cities of Leipzig, Zagreb, Florence, Hamburg, Zurich, Ljubljana, Vienna, Prato and Berlin. More than three hundred delegates from Europe and further afield join each year with significant participation from the hosting country. All our conferences received unanimously excellent feedbacks from the delegates about the quality of the speakers and interest of the topics discussed during round tables and world café sessions, but moreover the openness of the discussions was appreciated as they focused not only on success stories but also on issues and challenges: the delegates like to hear the truth not the spin.
The independent and non-commercial environment of this pan-European event represents a unique opportunity for participants to engage with their peers. Thanks to the friendly and open atmosphere, the conference will offer an excellent opportunity to engage in informal discussions, to share ideas, initiatives, experiences and learn from each other.
The conference language is English – simultaneous translation into Italian is provided at the plenary sessions. For further information please contact us at the Conference Hotline: Ms. Irmgard Kollmann firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: +43-1-7189476-0
We hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you and your organisation to the conference.
