The fifth edition of Cities of Tomorrow, Romania’s top meeting forum for business, architecture and administration, is to be held on March 28 this year, the organizers from the German-Romanian Chamber of Commerce (AHK) informed.
The event provides a rich variety of presentations, interactive roundtables, a marketplace of projects and solutions for urban development and, last but not least, a great opportunity for networking. Top international guests will debate on the topic of competitive Romania.
“Cities of Tomorrow” 2017 is dedicated to the urban and regional competiveness in stimulating sustainable development of Romania’s cities and regions. Successful promoting of a city or region means the successful cooperation of all stakeholders and is a key factor for efficient development.
In times of growing mobility and internationalization of goods, services, labour and capital, Romanian regions are faced with increased competition with other regions of the world.
Efficient cooperation between all stakeholders involved in regional development helps create an investment-friendly business environment and related economic advantages.
In this regard, Cities of Tomorrow 2017 aims at raising the audience’s awareness on several crucial topics such as how can the business community and civil society be involved in major economic projects, how can the private sector positively affect the quality of the public services – starting with the first meeting with a potential investor through project implementation and beyond, how important is the presence at international events for the promotion of the city’s/ regions’ projects, how can stakeholders enter and remain in a common dialog and what added-value does networking generate within the region.
Current topics shortlisted by a specialized jury shall be discussed at several roundtables.
The topics refer to the competitive business and economic development, to the tasks and roles of authorities and business actors, the shortages in urban and rural infrastructure, municipal applications and city management (public utilities, public parking, traffic management), Inner-cities and Historic Urban Areas, integration of the city’s outskirts and energy efficiency.
The conference is designed to provide useful information and new insights for city mayors, city managers, representatives of regional development agencies and metropolitan areas, representatives of city and county councils, Romanian and foreign private companies, professionals in urban planning and architects, real estate investors and developers interested or based in Southeast-Europe, real estate professionals, representatives of chambers of commerce and industry, representatives of industrial clusters, technology providers, urban infrastructure and utilities companies, NGOs or banking professionals.
