Announcing IoT13: How to build a business in the Internet of Things

Well, we’ve looked and looked, but can we find a business focussed, one day conference that deals with building businesses on the Internet of Things?  No we cannot.

So we’ve made one for you: Internet of Things 2013 (IoT13) a one day, single track forum that aims to educate, inspire and connect the people and companies turning connected devices into profitable businesses. By bringing together the companies that are already doing good business with IoT services and products, we want to give attendees practical actions for building their business using IoT and the contacts to make it happen.

The IoT is closer than you might think: the list of successful products and services built on connected devices is growing day by day, and not just in industrial markets. Consumer brands like Nike, Phillips and Lego all have connected products, while IoT is on the product development radar for every big brand in consumer electronics and appliances. IoT13 will showcase the experiences of brands working with IoT and help anyone who is interested in developing a product or service in the area.

The forum will cover questions such as where the best applications and markets for IoT, what makes the difference between success and failure in the sector, how large corporates are using IoT and how to get involved and what is the investor’s view of the market. As well as war stories from the larger brands, we will be building in time for showcasing some of the high growth, exciting businesses operating in the area, and plenty of opportunities for high quality discussions and networking.
