In addition to the keynote speakers, the event offers more than 30 speakers, both local and from abroad. Presentations are divided into five different themes:

  1. Climate change, sustainability, adaption and resilience;
  2. Innovation and disruption;
  3. Urbanization;

  5. Regulation and legislation

The Conference will also feature a networking café.

Delegates will get access to presentations, technical papers and slides after the conference.
