If you’re reading this post, you’re undoubtedly familiar with The Internet of Things (IoT), a revolution that describes the exploding network of objects, sensors, and “things” connected to the Internet.
It’s been a wild ride thus far.
In this post, we’ll take a look at a handful of must-attend Internet of Things (IoT) conferences. Conference descriptions are taken from each respective website.
Our list is most certainly not exhaustive, as we chose to focus on larger events that are primarily IoT focused. As an example, we’re not listing an event like Maker Faire, since even though there are a number of IoT relevancies amongst conference participants, the event is less of an IoT event and more of a DIY / maker event. If you don’t see a conference on this list that should be here, please comment at the bottom of this post and we’ll make sure to add you! Also, make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for more helpful links / databases of IoT conferences around the world.
