Global Town Hall at Metropolitan Solutions, 8-12 April 2013, Hannover, Germany

February 18, 2013

A paramount platform for city-industry dialogues, the Global Town Hall® is a response to cities’ growing needs for low carbon, low-risk, eco-friendly, durable and economical infrastructure solutions. While local leaders will get to know the world’s most cutting edge and sustainable solutions, the platform also allows the business to learn about the real needs and challenges faced by cities today.  

Covering issues such as urban management, energy, water, waste, green buildings, mobility, security and automation, the Global Town Hall® includes presentation by experts on the latest trends for climate-safe and resilient urban infrastructure options, business presentations on the existing and potential field trials of their creative products and services, a forum and marketplace for exchanging ideas and networking, as well as individual guided tours of the tradeshow tailored specifically to cities’ thematic interests.

On 11 April 2013, the first meeting of ICLEI’s SuperCities – large and fast-growing cities with over one million inhabitants - will be held as part of the event. An optional excursion to the International Building Exhibition in Hamburg on 11 April 2013 is also available.

 Registration for the Global Town Hall® is free. ICLEI Members will receive a free ticket to Metropolitan Solution and Hannover Messe tradeshows valid for the entire duration of the events.
