The M2M Alliance is expecting more than 60 exhibitors and 1,000 participants this year for the eighth staging of the largest and most important M2M event in Europe. The event is truly international with trade visitors from over 30 countries.
The branch leaders are meeting at the M2M Summit from 20 – 21 October, under this year’s slogan - M2M – From technology to business - to discuss the latest trends in the M2M communication field. As host and the world’s largest branch association, the M2M Alliance will also provide high-ranking lecturers and a broad diverse program. As in previous years, the M2M Summit as congress and accompanying exhibition, will present and discuss the top M2M communication themes and technical Innovations.
Machine-to-machine communication is one of the largest growth markets and is an important vehicle for innovation in many branches. Last year, the M2M Summit achieved a new visitor and exhibitor record - with 991 registered participants and over 60 exhibitors, the summit earned the title of largest M2M event in Europe. For this year’s congress, the goalposts have been raised and the M2M Alliance expects a renewed growth. “We want to give businesses, research facilities and other interested parties the possibility to inform themselves about the latest developments in M2M technology and discuss this with others at our event”, explained Eric Schneider, first Chairman of the M2M Alliance. “International co-operation and uniform standards are part of the most important themes of the M2M Alliance for the years to come”. Schneider attributed, that politicians have finally recognized that Industry 4.0 can only be achieved with M2M technology and its products, to the continuous work of the M2M Alliance.
As smart devices are being used more and more in our day-to-day lives, M2M communication can no longer be ignored. The M2M Summit offers decision-makers and trade experts an excellent opportunity to inform themselves about the latest news and successes in the M2M branch and to discuss the perspectives and development possibilities.
