As an essential component of developing a smart city, and in line with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the Emirate aims to transition its economy's foundation from natural resources to knowledge, innovation, and the use of cutting-edge technology.

The 3rd Abu Dhabi Smart City Summit is taking place on 31 October - 1 November 2023 in Abu Dhabi under the theme A Digital Journey Towards a Livable City.

The Summit will bring together key government and private organisations once again to collaborate and discuss their forthcoming initiatives and technology requirements to make Abu Dhabi's vision of becoming a leading global Smart City a reality.
