IoT Week is an annual event organized by the IoT Forum since 2011. The IoT Week conference gathers industry and academia representatives from around the world. So far editions of the IoT Week were held, respectively, in Barcelona, Venice, Helsinki, London, Lisbon, Belgrade, Geneva and Bilbao.
The last edition attracted about 850 participants specialized in the IoT domain, including research centres, research projects, large industries, SMEs, developers, standards development organizations and policymakers, including the European Commission.
The IoT Week 2021 conference will be in a hybrid format, with the possibility of attendance as a virtual delegate or a virtual sponsor/exhibitor as an alternative to physical attendance, for anyone unable to travel. All sponsors and exhibitors will be featured appropriately in the online Conference Platform and Conference App, with virtual display space and features to augment a possible physical stand area. Therefore, in addition to the opportunities of the face-to-face meetings in our exhibition area, sponsors and exhibitors will have wider interaction with a much larger global community through the virtual platform.
The rising awareness of climate change has caused the popularization of sustainability and the realization that we need to do things not only differently, but better.
As focus shifts to finding solutions to climate issues, technological advancements and innovation present a promising way forward.
The Internet of Things, for example, which Boston Consulting Group estimates will boom into an $267 billion dollar industry by 2021, promises to
facilitate great leaps in our efforts to transform our places and spaces, from homes and offices to entire cities, into sustainable environments.
If IoT technologies build on not only established technology, but also new capabilities in the backend, such as artificial intelligence, deep semantic
interoperability and novel contractual arrangements like Blockchains, they will undoubtedly bring fundamental change to all sectors of activity, improving the way we live and work.
In other words, IoT is likely to be an essential element of the Next Generation Internet, setting the groundwork for systems and devices of the future.
