The Director General of MATTER and Chief Creator of PUZZLE X, Dr. Zina Cinker, said: “PUZZLE X is not a futurist forum. Every year we invite the world’s most credible authorities and undisputed leaders in science and technology who are building the pieces of the future today. The innovations shown are not projections or speculations. They are discoveries that are happening today. And during 3 days in Barcelona, we bring these innovations to you and open the doors to give you a sneak peek of the Exponential that are coming to transform our industries and societies.”
PUZZLE X 2023 will be held alongside Smart City Expo World Congress, the international summit for cities and smart urban solutions; Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress, Tomorrow.Building, and Tomorrow.Blue Economy – focusing on the opportunities of the blue economy. The unparalleled gathering of events strengthens the role of the event and Barcelona as a global hub of innovation and provides answers to these the many challenges that our society is facing.
