Smart cities

Vienna

23 - 25 April 2020


The vibrant capital of Austria is proud to host the AIJA seminar on smart cities from 23 to 25 April 2020.

Smart cities are cities where everything is connected. Areas and buildings are intertwined with technology, and through sharing of data, these become more efficient, more environmentally friendly and more user friendly. At our Vienna seminar, we will delve into the many aspects of smart cities, ranging from real estate development, environmental aspects, infrastructure collaboration, digitalised engineering and building to IT and property rights issues. There will also be panels looking into procurement and litigation from a smart city point of view. Whether you are a smart city expert or novice, the seminar will allow you to meet peers from all over the world interested in tomorrow's real estate game.

Vienna, the romantically imperial city, is best known for its art, culture and history. The city has been synonymous with music for centuries, being home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss. But also today, Vienna has a lot to offer. In 2019, the city has topped Mercer’s Quality of Living Ranking for the 10th year in a row. Roland Berger’s Smart City Strategy Index 2019 has ranked Vienna as first among 153 cities worldwide. And, last but not least, Vienna is also the only world capital to produce its own wine.

The seminar will be rounded off by the social program where you will be able to taste wine from different Austrian regions with the guidance of own sommelière and – of course – enjoy Vienna’s best Schnitzel in a classical atmosphere. Don’t miss our optional dinner on Saturday evening, where the Grand Ferdinand, a members only restaurant, will open the doors for aija and provide you with a magnificent view over the historic city centre of Vienna.

We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna!
