Smart city development and ICT industry come together at the Nokia Arena in June 2023


The international Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference will light up the Nokia Arena in Tampere with intelligent urban development and digitalisation June 6–7 2023. The number one event for current industries brings forth modern thinking, technology, services, and solutions. The event is organised by the City of Tampere, Business Tampere, and the Tampere Trade Fairs Group.

The Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference will blend together the events of Tampere Smart City Week 2022 conference & expo for smart city development and DigITre for the ICT industry that were both organised for the first time last summer. Now eagerly moving towards the innovative event package in June with the sales for the remaining exhibitor spots are underway. Last year Nokia Arena proved to be an excellent venue for this modern future event.

− We have summed up the event that launched so spectacularly last year and placed all our bets on the next one. We believe that the Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference - with its revised programme, true commitment, and brighter outlook - innovates solutions, provides experience, and creates for the future, says the Project Manager for the event entity Sami Siurola of the Tampere Trade Fairs Group.

International top event for smart city development and ICT

The topical and future-proof industries of ICT and smart city development are regenerating themselves at an ever-increasing pace. The parties involved in organising the Tampere Smart City Conference & Expo - the City of Tampere, Business Tampere, and the Tampere Trade Fairs Group - firmly believe that next summer’s upcoming event will also offer ground-breaking and regenerative encounters at the top of their respective fields. This complete and extensive event will form a global hub of intelligent city development, ICT, and digitalisation, and again we expect people from a variety of countries; in 2022, the share of international visitors was 15 % from a total of 28 countries.

− Tampere is globally known for its companies and among other smart cities. Decades of groundwork and our strong brand are showing in the interest the international field is showing in us. The latest example of this is our recently launched cooperation with Japan. In collaboration with Japanese cities, we are developing new, intelligent methods that will utilise the collected data to support the residents’ well-being. The core of Tampere’s smart urban development lies in doing things together and learning from one another. This is evident in the Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference too. It is no coincidence that major events take place here. In the future, smart technologies and rich experiences are sure to intertwine more and more, says Teppo Rantanen, Executive Director of Growth, Innovation and Competitiveness, City of Tampere.

Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference combines events and encounters

Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference will showcase the latest and greatest in artificial intelligence, robotics, automation, and digitalisation. The event will provide insights into areas such as cyber security, smart residential areas, and mobility – such as the much-discussed autonomous driving. The viewpoints will focus on international cooperation and responsibility. True to its name, the event will provide a smart event experience combined with conferences and seminars at the Nokia Arena. The programme offering gives you excellent keynote speakers and the most topical addresses in the field, and the event will also include award ceremonies for the top experts in smart city development and digitalisation. At the events, international encounters and top specialist networking have central roles. The Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference is geared to smart urban development networks, companies, and ecosystems; to the ICT sector, municipalities, cities, and educational institutions; and to the field’s specialists and future experts.

The Tampere Smart City Expo & Conference is organised by the City of Tampere, Business Tampere, and the Tampere Trade Fairs Group. The event is produced by the Tampere Trade Fairs Group.
