Spinverse and LuxTurrim5G partners at the Expo 2020 Dubai

World Expos are one of the oldest and largest international events on the planet, taking place every five years and lasting six months. It is an event for all to experience, explore, innovate, and have fun by sharing ideas and working together. An Expo is a global showcase event that aims at sharing newest innovations, promoting progress and fostering cooperation. Exactly what Spinverse does in its daily business.

The Finnish pavilion presents globally leading clean technologies, sustainable and digital solutions just to mention a few main themes. Since Expo 2020 Dubai opened its gates, it has recorded over 13.5 million in-person visits and nearly ten times as many (121 million) virtual visits. The Finnish pavilion has already welcomed almost 700 000 visitors during this time.

Spinverse and LuxTurrim5G ecosystem are participating in the Expo to promote how smart cities can tackle the grand challenges regarding urbanization and climate change, boost sustainable development and enable their digital transformation. The developed concept and holistic solution is based on modular 5G smart poles and a data marketplace providing the digital backbone and infrastructure for smart cities. This allows the development of a multiplicity of new smart city services related e.g. to public safety, green last-mile logistics, autonomous transport and healthy living. To make this happen requires co-creation, development of new operating models and facilitation of extensive cooperation between different stakeholders globally – where Spinverse is experienced in.

Meet the Spinverse experts Pekka Torvinen and Joni Turunen at Expo 2020 Dubai on 10 March 2022 and learn more about Smart Cities and Ecosystem leadership. The extensive LuxTurrim5G smart city ecosystem shows a great example of Spinverse work on ecosystem leadership towards commercialisation and joint offering.

We also welcome you to join our intensive one-hour webinar on 10th March to learn more about how to boost smart city service development with data collected via 5G smart pole networks and other data sources. This webinar is part of LuxTurrim5G VIP Day activities at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
