Kongress Digitale Städte – Digitale Regionen

8 September 2021

Digital Cities - Digital Regions

The "Digital Cities - Digital Regions" congress is the leading event of the State of Hessen, Germany, for digitisation in municipalities and regions.

It offers actors from politics and administration, business, science and society a forum to obtain information about the topics "Smart City" and "Smart Region" and to network.


Your meeting point for the Smart City community!

“How can the municipality be developed in a smart way?” This is the challenge facing all municipalities and local societies. We are bringing solution designers and providers together - whether you come from a municipality, from science, from companies or start-ups, from initiatives, clubs or associations.
