The annual conference of Major Cities of Europe (MCE) took place in Leipzig, Germany from 28 – 30 May. It has been organized and hosted by the MCE organization in close cooperation with the City of Leipzig and the municipal IT supplier LECOS GmbH.
Under the headline “Are we ready? Taking the digital city to the next level”, multiple leaders, stakeholders and experts from across Europe came together for exchange. Different sessions with a variety of formats took place with topics ranging from open and big data to digital government in practice and required skills for digitization in governmental structures.
The Major Cities of Europe conference has been a great success for the organization and for Leipzig, with close to 200 delegates from 18 countries who unanimously gave a very positive feedback.
