Ineco has participated in the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, Habitat III, which took place in Quito (Ecuador) from 17-20 October 2016. This event, which is held every 20 years, brings together the greatest authorities from almost 135 countries to lay the foundations for the urban development agenda. Among the event’s activities, the former subsecretary of the Spanish Ministry of Public Works, Mario Garcés, and the president, Jesús Silva, participated in a conference entitled Crises as an Opportunity to rethink urban and housing policies, in which Silva underlined the importance of planning and mobility as pillars of sustainable urban development.
The company also participated in two presentations at BIMEXPO, which was held in Madrid last October. The aim of the event is to evaluate the solutions, services and knowledge industry for the professionals involved in the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling) in the design, planning, construction and maintenance process. Ineco is the coordinator of es.BIM, a commission established by the Spanish Ministry of Public Works for the implementation of BMI methodology in Spain.
Ineco was also present as a co-exhibitor at the Microsoft pavilion in the Smart City Expo World Congress, held in Barcelona last November. At the exhibition, Ineco presented the new CityNECO platform and its solutions for mobility, real-time traffic data collection and car-park reserve management.
Ineco also took part in the 2nd International Conference, organised annually by the PPP for Cities forum and held in parallel with the Smart City Expo.
