Smart Solar Street Lights and Smart Benches at Viva Tech and EXPO Astana
Last month EnGoPlanet was honored to receive an invitation to present its Smart Solar Street Lights and Smart Solar Benches at Viva Tech conference in Paris. This conference will gather more than 7000 CEOs and 1000 investors from all over the world.
This year at Viva Tech conference main topic will be Smart City concept. If there’s one word that can describe Viva Technology (or “VivaTech” for short), it’s that it’s a ginormous conference. While it was just the first edition last year, 45,000 people made their way to Paris to talk about all things tech. VivaTech is back again this year, June 15-17.
EnGoPlanet will participate in Smart City panel that will discuss solutions and products that can make our cities more smarter and energy efficient. In addition, this panel will focus on trends that are happening in Smart Solar Street light arena and also touch base on a potential of Smart Solar Benches to become standard urban furniture in Smart City concept.
Another big event that is happening these days is the Energy EXPO in Astana, Kazakhstan. EnGoPlanet was also privileged to be invited to presents its Smart Solar Street Lights and Smart Solar benches at this huge event. On June 10, 2017 the International Specialized Exhibition “Astana EXPO-2017” will open its doors. 100 countries and more than 10 international organizations will take part in the preparation of the pavilions.
The main theme of EXPO-2017 is “Energy of the Future”. It reflects the preoccupation of the international community with the problem of energy consumption, which is having an increasing impact on our planet. The main objective of the exhibition is to call for responsibility, to foster a discussion and to develop knowledge enabling people to plan and control energy consumption on our planet and to minimize damage to the environment.
It is expected that the exhibition will be visited by 2 million tourists, and the total number of visits will be about 5 million. It is planned that 85% of the total number of visitors will be citizens of Kazakhstan, and 15% - foreign nationals, most of which will come from the CIS countries and China. A significant number of tourists is also expected to arrive from Europe, Turkey and the United States.
The International Specialized Exhibition EXPO-2017 in Astana will start its work on June 10, 2017 and will end on September 10, 2017.
We can't wait to be at both events and we will write again with out impressions and feedback that we received.
