In 2014, the event is renamed as UrbanTec Asia to further its global vision and fortify the high-level platform for “New Concepts and Smart Ideas” to energize the era of new urbanization.

By international standards, smart city has been defined as an advanced stage of urban development, as assurance of fine technologies and quality services being applied to improve urban environment and livelihood. In a smart city where the people are truly cared for, governance and service will be more efficient whereas the industries will be upgraded to a higher level.

With contributions from leading experts, the Conference will focus on the core industries in smart city, such as urban development models, information and communication technologies, intelligent transportation systems and smart buildings with energy efficiency.
