The key topic of the 2016 Forum is 'Fast-Growing Megacities: Technologies of Dynamic Development'. How to get priorities straight and meet technological challenges arising during the development of megacities? How to make an environment as comfortable as possible using technological solutions? These and many other questions will be addressed at the Moscow Urban Forum.

This year's Moscow Urban Forum will be held at Moscow’s Manege Central Exhibition Hall from June 30 to July 3. On the first day of the Forum, the mayors of world cities and leading urban experts will discuss the development of cities in the era of technological revolution.
