Internet of Things World Europe starts October 05 in Berlin, promising a detailed and thorough focus on the challenges ahead for the industry of connected technology in Europe. IoT has the backing of the European Commission to accelerate innovation and increase efficiency, productivity gains and growth. But despite the fact that the benefits of IoT are being recognized, the conference aims to tackle some of the issues surrounding implementation, such as safety and security, privacy and data, accountability and trust. This will be a realistic and rigorous study of the challenges ahead.
The visitor profile for this important event includes senior level professionals from more than thirty countries, and visitors can expect to network with attendees from twenty industries at the cutting edge of IoT. Speakers include Hakan Kostepen, Executive Director – Product Planning Strategy & Innovation at Panasonic, Molly Webb, Founder / Head of Smart Technologies from Energy Unlocked / The Climate Group, and Hans Ristner, Senior Vice President Volvo Group strategy at Volvo Group.
A further benefit of attending to conference is a chance to participate in facilitated meetings set up by the conference networking team. Meetings can be set up before the show, with personal introductions made on site. Speed networking sessions are also available – 2 minute meetings, one-on-one, at which you can pitch your product or service to senior and influential executives, swap business cards and follow up later. In addition, extended and dedicated coffee breaks allow networking between attendees, sponsors and exhibitors in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
