In the meantime, at the other side of the Atlantic


We will have the opportunity to know more about the Argentinian’s Smart Cities, especially those located at the region of Chaco. The city of Resistencia hosts the second edition of ExpoDacNEA 2015.

Programa Jornadas Smart Cities - Viernes

One of the featured themes will be Smart Cities and opportunities for environmental innovation. Policy decision makes, creative, experts, researchers, urban planners and lots of other active people will be discussing how to improve communities and reflect about their sustainable future.

I will be speaking in this event; I’m pleased to contribute with some topics related with “Small Smart Cities and Sustainable Tourism”. You can check all the agenda in the website and also in Facebook.

It will be an intensive week for me, flying to Amsterdam to cover the global events 5G World Summit, LTE World Series ad Connected Cars. I’m honored to be invited for the second year, to write about these events and maybe, who knows, to test drive some of the awesome technology that is coming to the market very soon.

And of course, to those who are skeptics to these technology themes, I can assure you that I’m still human and I will have time, for a beer or two by the canals 😉

Meet you there! Cheers 😉
