Partnering with the best organizations to bring the flawless festival experience
This year, for the third time in a row, Serbian Tech was one of the proud partner organizations of the Smart City Festival which was held in Belexpo Center. As it is officially finished, we are happy to share our impressions with you.
Smart City Festival is the conference that gathers key stakeholders, organizations, companies, startups, entrepreneurs, citizens, and consumers from the field of urban innovation, IoT, green energy and climate. As devoted promoters of the Serbian IT ecosystem, we were in charge of connecting people, companies and startups all day long.
What is the SmartCity festival all about?
Traditionally, the day was filled with talks, panel discussions, workshops, and networking. Conference participants had the opportunity to learn more about the importance of open data. How digital transformation and innovations can improve urban and rural life. And what are the best practices that could be implemented.
The conference was open to the public and approximately 600 people were in attendance. On top of that, 140 children participated in STEM early education. They got the opportunity to learn about robotics, programming, entrepreneurship and all the innovative ways of learning and education.
For the end of this year, we want to acknowledge Belexpocentar, who provided us with amazing space, and all our partners and sponsors without who this wouldn’t be possible.
EPSON showed us how future education looks like with Epson technologies. Thank you for demonstrating to us how interactive projector Eb-696ui can improve learning at an early age education through interactive and creative games. We truly hope that in the near future we will have an opportunity to implement these technologies in schools and educate our children through an innovative approach. Once again many thanks to Epson and stay innovative.

TOYOTA, a leader for the last 20 years in the field of hybrid cars. The magic of a hybrid vehicle is that it uses power from two sources – in Toyota’s case, it is a gasoline and electric engine. Hybrid cars are less polluting, and with lower charges and lower fuel costs, you will save on them. On Smart City Festival, Toyota presented us in the expo area of their amazing vehicles RAV4, Corolla Touring Sports and Camry Hybrid. You can arrange a free ride and try them. Toyota is dedicated to its Environment Challenge 2050, where the aim is to develop vehicles that have the lowest possible impact on the natural world around us.
