Fair City

Part of the city’s life since 1959, the International Engineering Fair once transformed Brno into a cosmopolitan metropolis full of foreigners, technological innovations and consumer goods ‑ eagerly sought out by hundreds of thousands of visitors who flocked into the Brno Exhibition Centre every year.


Although the prestige of the International Engineering Fair certainly endures, today the event is primarily a professional platform enabling the most influential figures in Central European and world engineering to get together. But why can’t the whole of Brno enjoy the occasion as a holiday like it once did?


Brno Fair City

The City of Brno and BVV Trade Fairs Brno (Veletrhy Brno) have put together a project that recalls the time when the whole city lived and breathed the trade fair and was full of hustle and bustle – activities for visitors, exhibitors as well as citizens of Brno.

Pride and Tradition

BRNO FAIR CITY aims to reawaken in Brno’s citizens pride and a respect for tradition of the engineering fair, which has been contributing to Brno’s prosperity and glory for more than half a century. Visitors and exhibitors will then have access to everything Brno offers and will be enticed away from hotel rooms into the lively city centre.

Pierre Jean Coulon

President of the TEN Section of the European Economic and Social Committee

Once when travelling, I came across an article published by the airline British Midland in which they wrote that one of the smartest cities in Europe – alongside London, Hamburg and Bristol – was Brno. This brought me here to this conference, to share with you few thoughts on the topic of smart cities. If the smart city project is ever going to succeed, it’s necessary to respond right now to certain tasks and challenges, such as the question of personal data protection, or the ability of citizens to work with digital technologies. This is also a task for politicians, economists, and mayors.

Siri Ellen Sletner

Norwegian Ambassador

As early as 2016 Norwegian representatives were present at a seminar in Brno about smart cities; last year in September, a Brno delegation of politicians and entrepreneurs took part in a conference in Stavanger which turned into the biggest smart cities event in Europe. I am delighted by the co-operation between academia and industry. When I stand here today and see how we are making joint progress with smart cities, I get the same sensation Kometa must have felt winning the ice hockey league a few days ago.

Petr Ouška

Managing Director - Public Sector & Real Estate at ČEZ ESCO

The URBIS fair has offered us a great chance to get inspired and exchange ideas with international experts in the field about how to create a concept for a smart city. The trade fair has also represented the ideal opportunity to meet with existing business partners and establish relations with new ones. Everything was conducted in the friendly atmosphere of the Brno Exhibition Centre, a place we’re always happy to come back to.

Jaroslav Kacer

Deputy Mayor of the City of Brno (responsible for the Smart City brief)

I’m extremely pleased that the city of Brno is taking part in organising Urbis Smart City Fair 2018, which has been an unprecedented success. The main aim of this event has been to create a European platform to bring together not just cities – C2C or City to City – but also scientific and specialist institutions, experts from every sector, and of course the commercial sphere, to improve municipal life through the use of modern technology. Also essential is the sharing of “experience”, and not only the positive and successful kind – we also need to learn from our mistakes.

Daniel Štofan

CEO, GoodVision

We were already aware of last year’s inaugural event and this year we are taking part in URBIS for the first time. It’s a packed programme with a very high quality of participation – the conference in particular is associated with some top names. Regarding the activity on our stand, I can’t complain. We’ve been busy all day and gratified by the interest shown in our product, which was also was given the prize for startups. We’ve been speaking with lots of interested parties and we hope to see more integration and opportunities to find a role for our product, We’ve already picked up loads of interesting ideas.

Louise Vogel Kielgast

Associate of the Danish urban architects Gehl

I’m happy to have been able to attend the URBIS SMART CITY FAIR. It’s my first time at this event. I don’t go to trade fairs very often, so I’m still getting used to this busy programme. I’m pleased to be here at this event and be representing the Danish urban architectural studio Gehl. I appreciate the numerous debates about smart cities that are going on here at the trade fair. The atmosphere is also nice and friendly. I like the fact that visitors can wander through the exhibition halls and we can all find something we’re interested in.

Anna Hroudová

Customer relations specialist, T-Mobile

We regard the overall concept of the URBIS SMART CITY FAIR, focusing as it does on smart cities, as beneficial and useful. Over the course of two days, representatives of Czech firms and municipalities – large and small – can meet in the same place and share their mutual experiences. Presentations from abroad are also a source of inspiration. T-Mobile has been presenting here a comprehensive technology solution for optimising urban transport, a strategy for domestic and commercial coverage using optical networks, as well as specific projects within the smart city/smart home area.

Lukáš Loun

Head of Smart Cities, Siemens

Compared to previous years, we can see a marked advance in organisation, and in the concept of the URBIS SMART CITY FAIR as such. We welcome the four-podium arrangement, because we can find something different happening on each. The benefits of the trade fair mainly derive from being conceived as a place where erudite specialists can congregate. So experts get better opportunities to establish connections and share their own experience. We’ve also been appreciating the media interest in the fair, because it’s raised awareness of the issue and the technology of smart cities in the consciousness of the general public, which is who the technology is designed to serve

Petr Tomášů

Executive, Urbitech

The programme of this year’s URBIS SMART CITY FAIR is even busier than last year’s. Also, reducing the length from four to two days has been more convenient for us. The trend towards smart cities seems stronger by the day, so we welcome the fact that a platform like this trade fair exists here in the Czech Republic. Exhibitors can show off their solutions, and present their products. In terms of our own firm, I welcome the advantage the fair gives us of being able to link up with so many civil servants at the municipal level – they’re the direct customers of our technology.
