About The Conference

UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF MINISTRY OF MUNICIPAL AND RURAL AFFAIRS (MOMRA)

The first annual Saudi Smart Cities conference is a platform bringing together over 700+ participants from ministries and governmental bodies from across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

With the event held endorsement of Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs (MoMRA), the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs will use this conference as a platform to bring in all the key stakeholders who are and will be involved to learn about the best-practices and state-of-the-art technologies and products that will play a key role in developing their upcoming Smart Cities.

Acting on the Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud’s Kingdom’s Vision 2030 plan, the Kingdom will be investing over US$ 500 billion into modernizing its infrastructure across the 285 municipalities to provide the best quality of life for their citizens on par with global standards. The Saudi Smart Cities conference being the first its kind in the Kingdom promises to feature international best practices, state-of-the-art technologies and create an interactive dialogue to engage citizens, youth and women in developing Kingdom’s future cities.

With all the 285 Municipalities going private, this conference is the need of the hour which will bring together the public and private entities from national and international front and create dialogues which will help in taking important decisions.
