Event Overview


The economically active population in the Middle East is growing a lot faster than any other regions in the world. The Kuwaiti government has announced “Kuwait 2035”, which is a set of measures to boost the economy over the next 20 years through reducing on oil revenue and building the country as a hub for finance, trade and tourism in the region. Kuwait government has planned to build nine smart cities.

According to the Smart Cities Council (SCC), an industry coalition formed to accelerate the transition to the UN Agenda 2030 approved 'Next Society' cities; a smart city is defined as a city which has digital technology embedded across all city functions.The concept of the smart city has introduced the importance of Information and Communication technologies, in literature the term smart city is used to specify a city's ability to respond to the needs of its citizens. City developments are extensively influenced by the core systems of the cities such as transport, government services, education, public safety and health.

Hence, we at TraiCon are proud to present the first ever Futuristic Cities Summit scheduled to take place on the 10th - 11th March 2019 at the Millennium Hotel in Kuwait, a very exclusive two day platform for government leaders and industry experts to address inhabitable and sustainable city challenges, share their views on integrated smart technology and solutions and forge new partnerships. It is a global platform to explore how cities can better govern and build up resilience through policy, technology and social innovations.

We request all the government stake holders, private sector stake holders and smart city solution providers to support this initiative that focuses on Transforming Kuwait's Cities into Secure & Digitalized Sustainable Cities.

At this summit we will explore how to create successful collaborations between public and private sectors; the ways to fully leverage the modernization opportunities that will help boost Infrastructure, transport, increase investment opportunities and to develop smart sustainable cities. This platform will include a series of local and international keynote presentations, panel discussions, local and international case studies, interviews, demos, innovations and round table discussions; you will discover the latest trends, disruptors and innovators that are responsible for revolutionizing the industry as we know it.

How It Works ?

The event aims to lay the foundation for the next big smart cities phenomenon. It is a platform to initiate change. Hence it is imperative for solution providers like you to be here and be the change-makers!
