Hilton London Tower Bridge

We honor and recognize excellence in Smart City Industry!

GSCC is a global event dedicated to all who actively participate in the development of our communities. We recognize the merits of those involved in the industry – from companies, public institutions and academia to start-ups and experts engaged in various institutions.

We aim to be an active part in the building of tomorrow cities: with efficient management and administration, with a high quality of life and with a sustainable, durable and innovative vision.


The Global Smart Cities Contest is a bold new initiative by the World’s Smart City Organization to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people through the implementation and development of SC projects and initiatives.

Following our global experiences, we noticed a certain preoccupation and even concern regarding the key solution of a Smart City. How responsive is it, how safe is it, and how well does it integrate and analyze data we handle?

The Global Smart Cities Contest addresses all companies that offer solutions for Integrated Operations Center Platforms.
