Smart City & Future Commerce Convention Trailer feat

Mediaurban’s Maria Sisternas


A global event like no other, the Smart City & Future Commerce Convention 2017 is set to be Asia’s hottest Smart City event in years to come!
Not content at being ‘just another Smart City event’, we’re going full force to co-curate and co-organise the region’s most unique and biggest smart and digital event ever to explore the impact of the confluence of the digital world, future commerce and urban living, and how smart & digital advances are transforming cities, communities, and individuals around the globe. Set to be a mega 3-day event, we will feature keynotes by top leadership personalities who are some of the best in their industries, on top of all-star panel sessions with CXOs and thought leaders in both Smart City and Future Commerce. 

We’re shaking things up by putting our money where our mouth is — and co-hosting one of Southeast Asia’s biggest 48-hour smart city hackathons ever.
The prestigious Malaysia’s Top E-Commerce Merchant Awards (TopECM) makes a comeback this year as we commemorate innovation, competition and excellence amongst local Malaysian digital commerce companies. And throughout all three days, there will be a massive exposition with 300 booths from service providers, vendors, tech giants, urban developers, and more from around the world and across Asia, right here in the heart of Selangor.

A hotbed of innovation, creativity and intelligence, Selangor and Barcelona are coming together with their best in digital and smart city features, with the purpose of exploring the future of urban living.

Platform for Knowledge Exchange & Problem Solving

With Marketplace of Ideas and Solutions




By bringing together experts and practitioners from leading cities and countries in the APAC, Middle Eastern, Eurasian, and European regions to share their insights and experiences over a three-day convention, organisers Invest Selangor Bhd and Mediaurban are set to find the common grounds of knowledge and expertise from which to develop an innovative framework for future commerce as well as smart and digital technologies.
Participants would also indirectly aid in helping citizens, governments, and companies to understand that Public Private Partnerships play an important role in transforming a city, as well as have a voice in addressing the critical issues that will determine the success or failure of commerce


For more than 15 years, Invest Selangor Berhad has been a beacon for investors from all across the world who wished to invest, and prosper, in Selangor. Invest Selangor Berhad is a one-stop agency that provides information, advisory services, as well as startup or expansion assistance to potential and existing investors. Since our inception, we have attracted more than 4,600 manufacturing projects in Selangor. Thus we have been indirectly responsible for the creation of more than 360,800 jobs and attracting more than RM130.7 billion worth of investments to the state.

The Selangor Information Technology and E-Commerce Council (SITEC) was established by the Selangor State Government, under the secretariat of Invest Selangor to develop Selangor as the regional trading hub for e-commerce, and to uplift the startup ecosystem. The SITEC Council is chaired by Selangor State Exco in charge of investments, Dato’ Teng Chang Khim.

Mediaurban is the urban content creation agency of the Mediapro Group, working with cities in the fields of Smart Cities, Urban Strategy, City Branding, and Digital Experience. We are tech advocates working to turn cities into digitally-powered hubs, boosting the local economy, creating jobs and designing vibrant urban environments.
