Urban Tech Summit 2022 highlights


We all need better cities – more efficient, future-proof and safe to live in.

With two out of three people predicted to be town-dwellers by 2050, urban stakeholders will need to do a lot of planning to keep up with the unprecedented rate of urbanisation. The demand for innovation in the sector is as high as ever. The time for urban transformation is now.

Urban Tech Forward is a revolutionary event that aims to transform the notion of urban sustainability using powerful tech solutions. Designed to rethink spaces where people live and work – through the prism of efficiency, resilience and technology – the event brings leading urban tech innovators, venture capitalists, real estate developers, policy-makers and industry’s most prominent entrepreneurs to collaborate, shift the way we build and, ultimately, make an impact that matters.

Welcome To Warsaw

This year’s Urban Tech Forward is taking place in Warsaw – the dynamic capital of Poland – at the trendy Praga Koneser Center. One of the most exciting cities to visit in Europe offers an intellectual feast that’s rich in history and charm.

Home to luxury retail outlets and modern skyscrapers resting next to historic libraries and museums, the city is known for the unique atmosphere that is both cosmopolitan and, at the same time, rather raw.

Make the most of your time at Urban Tech Forward by staying in one of the recommended hotels and soak in the electrifying energy of the city.
