November 4, 2022

NEW YORK, November 3, 2022 – Hatch’s Urban Solutions team, along with its partner ThoughtLab, will unveil its ground-breaking new study, “Building a Future-Ready City,” at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from November 15-17. Hatch will examine how cities around the world plan to reinvent their urban environments to meet post-pandemic expectations, and address the increasing needs for resiliency, sustainability, inclusiveness, and economic development.

Is your city equipped for the future?

Our in-depth study shows how cities are planning to use partnerships, governance, and new business models and strategies around climate change, transportation and mobility, technology solutions and innovations, and investment in economic development to become future-ready over the next five years.

We will be attending the Smart City Expo World Congress and would be happy to meet and discuss a future-ready plan for your city. Please click here so we can get in touch!

“The degree of change and sweep of challenges have never been greater for cities,” says Bob Pell, Managing Director of Urban Solutions at Hatch. “And the most successful metro areas will be those that have clear visions and roadmaps for transforming themselves into future-ready cities. To succeed, urban leaders need evidence-based analysis that shows the innovative technologies, solutions, and business models that will work best in the future.”

Learn more about the study, methodology, and goals here. Our free e-book, city profiles, benchmarking platform, and other decision support tools will be available on Hatch’s dedicated site after the conference.
