“At the M2M Summit we want providers and end users to have the opportunity to have direct exchanges with each other,” chairman of the M2M Alliance Eric Schneider states. “Only through a direct exchange will companies be better positioned to understand what is already possible today and how to use these solutions for themselves. Manufacturers and developers will gain a better sense of what end users really need as well as how to manage these specific needs.”
In addition to the official program, the M2M Alliance offers guided tours to all interested parties in which it targets and presents the most interesting solutions and new developments.
On both days of the event, several thought-provoking panel discussions are held: the focus is on the EU – Market and Politics, Big Data, Utilities and M&A transactions in the M2M sector. For those interested, information sessions are also offered for participants who would like to learn about what is already possible today.
