M2M Summit - my machine talks to me
Machine-to-machine communication is one of the largest growth markets of the future and has already become an integral part of many business sectors. Over the last years, the M2M Summit has evolved to become one of the world’s foremost events in the M2M field.
The limitless reach of M2M was clearly demonstrated through the M2M Summit 2012, which took place for the first time in the “Mobile Capital” of Düsseldorf. No less than 747 visitors, 45 exhibitors and 11 sponsors made their way to the Congress Center Düsseldorf last year. The venue proved to be so perfect that the M2M Summit 2013 will also be held in Düsseldorf.
The Summit is hosted by M2M Alliance, the world’s largest M2M industry association. For this 7th M2M Summit they look forward to welcoming over 700 participants and more than 50 exhibitors to the Congress Center Düsseldorf on September 10th 2013.
Sweden should be acquired as official Partner Country 2013. Both of last year’s Partner Countries, the Netherlands and Canada, will also be present again. The international appeal of the M2M Summit is clearly reflected in the fact that last year’s event attracted manufacturers, users and research organizations from 34 countries.
In order to further develop this trend, the M2M Summit 2013 will be hosted entirely through English. Increased international orientation is one of the major goals of the M2M Alliance for the coming years. “We want our event to provide a platform for companies, research institutes and other interested parties to share and exchange information about the latest developments in M2M technology”, explains Eric Schneider, 1st Chairman of M2M Alliance. “In addition to supporting networking among the companies and the individual sectors, we aim to promote international cooperation and standardization.”
You can once again look forward to top-class international speakers and seven hands-on workshops with user-related presentations. The “Speakers’ Corner”, introduced last year, was so well received that it will be repeated this year, offering an open forum for specialized lectures and free exchange. On the eve of the Summit, M2M Alliance will once again host a “Meet & Greet” event with delegates of the partner Country, Association members, invited guests and selected representatives.
