The Internet of Things World Forum (IoTWF) is an exclusive industry event, hosted by Cisco. The IoTWF is widely recognized as the premier thought leadership forum in this rapidly growing industry, a must-attend event for key stakeholders and innovators in business, government, and academia driving adoption of the IoT worldwide. The 2015 IoTWF will showcase dramatic transformations now gaining momentum across every global sector, a new world of opportunities made possible by the Internet of Things.
Last year’s event in Chicago was attended by more than 1600 delegates including 84 media and analyst representatives, headlined by 13 speakers representing the best and brightest thinkers, practitioners, and innovators in the IoT landscape. The event attracted 29 global sponsoring partners, an increase of 80% from 2013. In addition, 20 start-up companies participated in the “IoT Stars of the Future Showcase.” Attendees gave the event an overwhelmingly positive score of 4.61 (out of 5), and the IoTWF was named the “IoT Event of the Year” in a worldwide survey by the 2014/15 Internet of Things Awards.
The IoTWF provides an essential forum for discussion and sharing of best practices on every front – flexibility, scalability, security, availability, and connectivity -- as individuals, companies, and governments accelerate and optimize their IoT deployments, driving dramatic gains in efficiency, economic value, and quality of life.
