Just after Europe’s Web Summit was over early this month, buzzing with tech startups hoping for the big break that would transform them into the rockstars of the tech, as well as keynote speeches by some of the biggest tech companies in the world.

Marketing Institute of Singapore (MIS) and Kotler Impact, Inc are working together to bring yet another great event much closer to us. As technology advances and cities get connected, businesses are under pressure to be digitally-savvy.

It’s important to understand what’s driving cities to become smarter: the growing ability to use technology to improve businesses and lives as a whole. Artificial intelligence (AI), customized healthcare, robotics, distributed energy generation, and big data are some of the technologies that will propel growth, efficiency, connectivity, urbanization, and optimizations in the future.

World Marketing Summit - Smart Cities

The Asia-Pacific region has been predicted to be the fastest-growing region in the smart energy space by 2025 with more than half of the smart cities being situated in China. Looking at a global scale, Europe will have the most smart city project investments due to the European Commission’s interest and engagement in developing these initiatives. Substantially, the European e-hailing market, which at present, bring about revenues of $50 billion is likely to realize $120 billion by 2025.

Having said this, it also means opportunities for marketers to tap on which have the potential to benefit their businesses. Marketers, with the right knowledge and skills, will be able to reach a more precise audience effectively, increase their brand awareness and thus delivering results. However, marketers are facing challenges in exploring boundaries and to get ahead of the trends and ever-changing digital landscape.
