About Cityscape Scotland 2021

Did you know that the smart city is considered to be Scotland’s eighth city?

That’s because the country is investing millions of pounds in game-changing digital technologies that can accelerate urban prosperity by making Scotland’s seven cities more attractive places to live, work, and play. Technology-enabled change programmes that focus on improving resilience and quality of life for residents span a wide variety of crucial public services – whether these are linked to education, energy, mobility, health, waste, estates, infrastructure, or citizen wellbeing.

Cityscape Scotland 2021 will bring together the companies and stakeholders working together to advance this digital revolution for a one-day conference designed to promote discussions about the role of data and digital technology in the country’s socioeconomic development. A series of keynotes and debate panels guided by the leaders of each Scottish region will provide the perfect backdrop to a day of extensive networking between buyers and suppliers looking to deepen their contribution to the country’s smart cities market.
