From October 13 to 15 we offered Virtually the Best opportunity to prepare for the changing world. Organised with the Municipality of Larissa the conference has been a great success with more than 400 delegates from 36 countries.

The aim of the programme was to present a variety of study cases from local governments, public and research organisations and to provoke discussions about the following key topics:  

  • Are digital, green, sustainable transformations, and cybersecurity a priority for our city organisation?
  • Do our cities have access to the skills needed to implement those major changes?
  • Do we believe that our style of leadership should evolve?
  • Is Covid going to oblige the reimagining of work and workplaces?

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.

We plan to hold our 2022 annual conference in person in Larissa in May. Information about the programme and logistics will come soon.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you at next year conference. For further information about our activities contact us at
