This week’s show is a little bit different! I’ve spent the last week in Barcelona at the Smart City Expo World Congress - the biggest Smart City conference in Europe.

It was a mind-boggling extravaganza of cities, technology, citizens & powerful ideas! What I loved about the conference, was that: as well as the normal technology vendors that you normally see at these kind of events, over 700+ Cities and Municipalities were also represented - so that was really cool!

You should check out my Twitter (@future_dist) and my Instagram Stories to catchup on everything you missed.

So for this week’s episode… I’ll bring you two interviews recorded live from the event.

First up, you’ll hear from the Global Public Sector Lead at Nokia - a company we know is ever-present in the 5g and hardware space, but as you will hear, they are increasing their reach into the services and system-integrator role.

Next up, you’ll hear from the FIWARE Chief Marketing Officer Cristina Brandtstetter the CEO of Bettair. FIWARE  is an open-source initiative defining a universal set of standards for context data management which facilitates the development of Smart Solutions for different domains.

One such Smart Solution is that of Bettair - a platform that maps urban air pollution within Cities - you will also hear from Leonardo Santiago - the CEO of Bettair.
