The event will provide insight into the technologies, case studies and markets that open as the advent of the internet of things is being realized, ranging from disruptive applications in consumer electronics and electrics, telecommunications, the automotive industry as well as building and industrial automation. Attributing a virtual signature to every device that surrounds us, thus making it uniquely identifiable, will allow for transformations in everyday life, ranging from the way business is conducted, all the way to increased efficiency in communications, transport, medical treatment and a wide range of other services.

Presentations from companies in the building/construction industry such as Arup and KieranTimberlake all the way to Disney Research, General Motors and the Chrysler group demonstrate the diversity of adopters and their needs, but can also highlight the versatility of the internet of things and the way deploying such platforms will offer solutions to the diverse range of problems different industries face.
• 31% of attendees are end users or systems integrators. Presenters and attendees at the event represent organizations involved in consumer electronics and consumer goods, automotive and aerospace, military, industrial and building automation as well as media and advertising.
• Technology, product development and roadmaps. See the latest progress from developers across the emerging value chain in the IoT and their enabling technology platforms, with examples including Orange, Deutsche Telekom, SAP, Oracle, IBM, Intel and ARM. As more products become commercially available, it becomes more and more interesting to identify current and future successful commercialization efforts and the trends that will define the most profitable routes to market.
