Smart City Expo Latam, organized by Manuel Redondo, is not only an event that promotes innovation and sustainability year after year, but in 2024, it also consolidates Mérida as the epicentre of urban transition for Latin America.

With the participation of global leaders, companies, and governments focused on tomorrow, it inspires new ideas and drives concrete actions towards a more efficient future.

Here’s the exclusive interview where he shares all the details as part of “Personalidades,” an interview series organized by Mobility Portal Latinoamérica.

What surprises and novelties await attendees at the 2024 edition of Smart City Expo Latam?

We are very excited to return to Mérida from July 9 to 11 with a renewed and energized event.

Over 300 speakers will gather to discuss urban future themes and current challenges facing Latin American cities over three days.

The venue will span 10,000 square meters dedicated to showcasing innovative solutions that enhance urban territories.

Additionally, there will be networking sessions, stages, cocktails, and one-on-one engagement spaces, with a special focus on sustainable mobility and public transportation.

What motivated the choice of Mérida as the event’s venue once again?

There are three key reasons why we decided to return to Mérida.

Firstly, the city has made significant strides in its mobility system over the past five years.

It has transformed from having one of the worst public transportation systems in the region to implementing a fully electric mechanism with world-class standards.

This commitment to decarbonization is crucial for us at Smart City.

Secondly, safety is a crucial factor for our participants.

Mérida is not only known as one of the safest cities in Mexico and Latin America but also offers a welcoming and culturally enriching environment that perfectly complements our mission at the event.

Finally, the visionary leadership of Governor Mauricio Vila has been instrumental.

His vision to position Mérida as a hub of innovation and sustainability in Latin America aligns perfectly with our vision for the congress.

What crucial urban themes and challenges will be addressed?

We will primarily focus on sustainable mobility as an integral component of urban planning.

We strongly believe that addressing mobility challenges can have a transformative impact on other urban aspects, such as waste management and overall quality of life.

Given the participation of elected mayors and governmental leaders, the Smart City will be a crucial platform for discussing and adopting cutting-edge responses.

How can companies and entrepreneurs make the most of their participation in the event?

We invite companies of all sizes, from large corporations to emerging startups, to join as partners and exhibitors at our event.

We also offer scholarships for students and public officials interested in exploring the latest trends and zero-emission solutions.

Who are some of the prominent speakers this year?

We are delighted to have Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Prize winner in Economics, among other distinguished personalities in urban economics and sustainable development, as part of our lineup of keynote speakers.

What are the steps to register and obtain more information?

Registration is already open on our website
