High-level delegates of the WeGO delegation had a chance to present their best practices in parallel sessions of the World Congress, where they focused on governance issues. At the parallel sessions, innovative and smart city thinkers gathered together to share knowledge and discuss pressing matters in smart city governance. For example, the Mayor of Seongnam, Mr. Jae-myeong Lee, illustrated the transformation of Seongnam City from a corrupt city into one of Korea's wealthiest cities and being known as the country's "Silicon Valley", while Seoul's CIO, Mr. Younghoon Choi, presented Seoul Metropolitan Government's smart city initiatives. Mr. Bernard Ewah, Head of e-Government of NITDA, successfully presented the agency's achievements in Nigeria, which includes the establishment of the Lagos Smart City & Innovation Hub. Finally, Gimpo's CIO, Ms. Gi-in Chae, presented on "Smartopia Gimpo", the city's key project in smart city innovation management, to the participants of the "Smart Up!" Session.


Apart from the main events, WeGO delegates took part in other activities, such as the World Smart Cities Awards Ceremony with WeGO members Seoul, Moscow, and Bandung as finalists; Brokerage Events; Cities CIO Club Annual Meeting; and other social events.
