About Smart Cities Conclave and Awards

India’s progressive cities are getting smarter. But will our smart cities be necessarily sustainable?

India’s smart cities will be incubators of innovation, enterprise and social progress. However, the pace of change – particularly at a time of global economic, environmental and social uncertainty will create a raft of challenges to sustainable development.

Smart, sustainable city transformations are complex and difficult, requiring a holistic approach, encompassing long-term planning, partnership and engagement.

BW Businessworld Smart Cities Conclave & Awards is a platform that endeavours to engage smart cities thought leaders and innovators to bring forth smart and sustainable ideas that can link our progressive cities to solutions that are best suited for them.

Every growing industry requires a platform of recognition that celebrates the best work out there. Transformational ideas, cutting edge execution and much more. Solutions and that improve lives and stories that inspire other players to do better.
