The TASWEEK delegation met with technology companies and universities.

Delegates from TASWEEK Real Estate Development and Marketing have visited leading technology companies in the US to build links on smart city development.

The delegation toured major multinational corporations, including Google, Facebook and Twitter, and universities including UC Berkeley and Stanford University, to promote the upcoming Smart Living City Dubai 2014 expo, which will be held in September.

The first edition of the event will be held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai from September 15th to 16th, 2014 at Jumeirah Emirates Tower, Dubai. A second event is planned for San Francisco in March 2015.

The expo, which is organised by TASWEEK and Inside Investor, will focus on successful local and international Smart startups and business programs through master classes, discussion panels and exhibition. The two-day event will be a platform for startup owners, technology investors, business accelerators, and representatives from public and private organisations to share their perspectives on current urban issues and potential solutions. There will be multiple workshops for participants and visitors hosted by some of the leading names from the industry along with networking opportunities.

Masood Al Awar, CEO, TASWEEK Real Estate Development and Marketing, said: "Dubai's Smart City vision has positioned the Emirate at a juncture where many leading international IT companies and service providers are keen to be part of the major transition. Smart Living City Dubai 2014 opens up many windows for global firms, looking to establish their presence in the country as well as the region. Our delegation to the USA provided us with an opportunity to promote Dubai's Smart City agenda along with Smart Living City Dubai 2014. The delegates interacted with the US companies and encouraged them to participate in the exhibition to showcase their Smart solutions and services to the regional visitors. The finalising of the venue for the next edition was also on the agenda of the visit."
