13th September 2018


The stakeholders in Bratislava have a series of important decisions to make about the city’s long-term future. The city has benefited greatly from the regions’ strong economy, the rising wealth of its population and the increasing sophistication of the investors and property developers. Development has been strong in the post-crisis years but not wildly out of control. But serious questions about the limits of its growth can no longer be put off for this city that’s bursting with potential. CEDES 2018 will explore the competing visions of the city and how they compare with the plans and dreams of similar European metropolises. How best can growth be coordinated to ensure that the city becomes an even more attractive and exciting place to live and work?
Speakers will be chosen from the ranks of the most powerful players on the Slovak real estate sector, internationally-based professionals and public officials. The program is being designed and developed in order to serve as a venue for the frank discussion of issues critical to the city’s future but also in a way to give newcomers a way to learn as much as possible about the city, the projects and the key players on the market.

When Urban Planning meets Smart City goals

How should Bratislava grow? Should it expand along its borders or is more effective to create greater density? Does it have the ability to direct this process through urban planning and do its infrastructure investments support these goals? What practical steps can it take to ensure its development takes place along Smart City guidelines?

Planning for growth: What Developers Want from the City, and what the City needs from them

The most successful cities are those that successfully combine the energy of private capital with the needs of the city. There are growing signs of a willingness from investors with a major stake in Bratislava’s growth to work with the city to cooperate. What do both sides need in order for this to happen?
