Thank you

Our big stage for digital innovation in the public sector

That was it, the sixth edition of the Smart Country Convention! More than 15,000 participants, over 350 partners, around 15,500 m2 of exhibition space and over 600 speakers on 4 stages - Germany's leading event for the digital state, public services and smart cities was once again a complete success!

In 2023, the Smart Country Convention was also a meeting place for top politicians from the federal and state governments, cities and municipalities. Four federal ministers, Nancy Faeser, Klara Geywitz, Cem Özdemir and Marco Buschmann, made appearances, Berlin's Governing Mayor Kai Wegner spoke in a video message about the digitalization of the state of Berlin and Germany's digital ministers were also present at the D16 meeting in Berlin.

As a pioneer of digitalization and partner country, Ukraine was able to contribute its experience in the digitalization of its country's administration over the course of three days. Especially in public administration, Ukraine was able to maintain the work of the authorities and the service for the people in the country with the help of digitalization, even after the beginning of the war of aggression by Russia.

We would like to thank all visitors, speakers, exhibitors and partners. We are already looking forward to the next Smart Country Convention from October 15 - 17, 2024!
