M2M Summit gets manufacturers and users talking
Europe’s most important event for M2M communication and the Internet of Things now spans two days
To help get the experts, manufacturers and users to talk more, this year’s annual M2M Summit is themed “M2M – From technology to business”. Due to the incredible interest shown in previous years, we have expanded the program and simultaneously extended it to two days. The M2M Alliance expects more than 60 exhibitors and over 1,000 visitors from 30 countries, for the eighth edition of the largest and most important M2M event in Europe.
As the world’s largest branch association and organizer, it is one of the main goals of the M2M Alliance, to further encourage the exchange of ideas about M2M solutions, between the suppliers and users. With the expansion of the M2M Summit to two days and a widely ranging program on offer, the internationally renowned exhibition will play an important part in this. As in previous years, the congress and accompanying exhibition will present and discuss the top themes and technical Innovations in M2M communication. International cooperation, uniform standards, the Internet of Things and the benefits of M2M in the Industry 4.0 sector are among the main topics. A large evening event will encourage further discussions.
Last year, the M2M Summit achieved a visitor and exhibitor record: With approx. 1,000 registered participants and over 60 exhibitors, the M2M Summit established itself as the largest M2M event in Europe. The goal is to aim equally high for this year’s congress and the M2M Alliance expects a renewed increase in visitors. With partner country, USA it is expected that international interest in the event will be much greater than in previous years.
“We want to bring businesses, research facilities and users together in one venue“, explained Eric Schneider, 1st Chairman of the M2M Alliance. “M2M communication and the Internet of Things is already an important part of our lives – privately and professionally. We offer manufacturers, developers and users an excellent opportunity with the M2M Summit, to exchange views about the current development status and hear about the possibilities, that are offered by intelligent M2M systems. Despite the increased interest, many companies don’t know all that is possible yet. That’s why we chose the current focus for this year’s M2M Summit to be ‘M2M – From technology to business”, Eric Schneider concluded.
