This is a two-day event offering top-level discussions among major players across manufacturing, transportation, health, logistics, government, energy, automotive, and several other industries.
The conference is meant for a broad appeal. Tracks serve IT decision-makers, developers and makers, OEMs, government and council officials, automotive executives, operators, technology providers, investors, and venture capitalists. Because it covers so much ground, attendees get a strong overview of where IoT stands now and where it’s headed. Typically, the broader a conference goes, the less the depth in drill-down topics. But that’s not a problem here, as it is exactly as billed: a top-level view.
Reason to attend: This is the conference for someone who wants an overview in where IoT stands now and where it is headed. Major companies sponsor the event and provide speakers, so the networking opportunities are strong if you’re looking for an IoT-related job or people to hire.
