  • Network with over 3,500 attendees
  • Coverage of intersecting technologies in relevant co-located events

Navigating IoT through the hype

The Internet of Things will connect existing systems and then augment those by connecting more things, thanks to wireless sensor networks and other technologies. Things on the 'edge' form mesh networks and can make their own automated decisions.

But where and how, in the scale of hype to reality, can the Internet of Things profit suppliers and users today? What are the pragmatic steps needed to enable the Internet of Things and widespread deployment of wireless sensor networks that are feasible and based on an ROI and not the hope someone else will pay for this? Who is buying IoT in the short term? Find the answers at this event in Santa Clara.

The IDTechEx Show!

Internet of Things Applications USA is part of the IDTechEx Show! A series of synergistic events on wearable, sensors, printed electronics, 3D printing, graphene & 2D materials, energy storage, electric vehicles. Each of these is a full two-day executive conference with a common exhibition. We co-locate these events because there is strong overlap across these topics, exposing you to the full relevant supply chains and customer and supplier bases, saving you time and money from attending separate events.
