Traffic congestion, population growth, climate change and emissions: it is all part of the big city problems. From 12 – 14 November, Connekt was in Barcelona for the Smart City Expo with a public and private delegation to address these common challenges.

During our visits to AECOC, Carnet and Barcelona City Council we were able to discuss the latest developments on Mobility as a Service, City Logistics and Smart Mobility. When visiting PTV Group, CEO Vincent Kobesen explained how their software can plan and optimize the movement of people and goods.
