With a theme of achieving sustainability through innovations, the show will showcase the cities of the future by highlighting the latest and the most innovative technologies that will change the future.

Future Cities Show focuses on education, wellbeing, knowledge sharing, collaboration among government-private-university-society, user-driven innovation, livability discussions, sustainable energy solutions, sustainable economic development and sustainable societal development to drive the wellbeing of all nations.

The three-day event takes place within six months of the UAE’s announcement of the launch of a new cabinet portfolio – the Ministry of Artificial Intelligence and Saudi Arabia’s granting of "citizenship" to Sofiya – a robot – the first country to make this move.

Future Cities Show will be full of activities that include an exhibition that showcases innovative technologies and sustainable solutions as well as a conference that will discuss future technologies and how cities will be retrofitted with new sensors, energy saving systems, processes and change management.

Dawood Shezawi, Chairman of the Organising Committee of the Future Cities Show says, “The testing and introduction of robots, drones and flying cars indicate one thing – the future has arrived. We will see unprecedented changes, disruptions and challenges as well as innovative solutions emerging that will create a completely new urban environment where technologies will dictate our life, work and activities.”

Future Cities Show activities are based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations and adopted by 193 countries in September 2015. The show also incorporates the 10X Dubai directives which were set by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. This is a radical programme that seeks to establish “X Labs” in every government entity and position Dubai 10 years ahead of the rest of the World.
