The very first Nordic Edge Expo was staged in 2015 as a two-day event. A gathering of 500 attendees from 14 countries, with 23 exhibitors. The concept was to bring like–minded people together to find out what was happening in our cities and communities and how we could make them smarter with the developing technology available.
Early on, the goal was to make Nordic Edge Expo the leading meeting place and smart city conference in the Nordics as a driving force in developing smart, sustainable and liveable cities, on account of the strong public sector, success in innovation and business and democratic values held in the region.
Since then, we have built up the conference and exhibition to take an international position in the smart city market and putting smart city Stavanger on the map, while holding close ties with organisations from our Nordic neighbours.
