The CEO of Planet in Brazil, Susanna Marchionni, will be one of the speakers during the Main Plenary at the Smart City Expo Curitiba 2019.

This is the second Brazilian edition of the biggest smart cities event in the world and is being held in Curitiba (PR) at the Birigui Expo Park between 21st and 22nd March.

The 2019 edition is expected to receive more than 6,000 people, representing 80 Brazilian cities and 25 cities abroad. The event will have four main themes: enabling technologies for smart cities; governance in digital cities; creative, sustainable, and human cities; and planning for innovative and inclusive cities.
