Commenting on the upcoming event, Praveen Singh, President- Exhibitions India Group, said, “The world is witnessing unprecedented urbanization at present, and there is perhaps no other country that is getting urbanized as swiftly as India. If unplanned, this leads to several critical issues such as overcrowding, congestion, and declining quality of life. Addressing these concerns requires well-designed cities that can deliver benefits in terms of economic development and prosperity, as well as encourage creativity and learning. Through this event, we endeavor to inspire people who already live in urban areas to look at their cities through a new lens and develop fresh insights which can help governments manage extant urban challenges. Our vision is to help all stakeholders across the value chain see how they can help in building robust urban infrastructures and sustainable energy, water, and transport systems by combining synergies and working towards a common goal.”
