Industry of Things World Asia 2018: Beyond the hype

The second edition of the award-winning Industry of Things World Asia in Singapore was unanimously characterized as a successful conference. The 300+ attendees put the success down to the rich mix of Industrial Internet of Things experts, the presentation content and the interactive sessions throughout the 3 event days.

With keynotes about the future of connected manufacturing, ranging all the way to how AI and IoT technologies are changing competition and disrupting business models, one thing became clear: the Industrial Internet of Things is here to stay. There is still a need for discussion and planning, but most importantly the need for collaboration across job functions and with different stakeholders to maximize the effectiveness of these technologies and tools, but the possibilities opening up are part of our business reality.

Shaping the future of the Industrial IoT in 2019

Industry of Things World Asia is coming back to Singapore on July 10-12, 2019. Be part of the thought-provoking discussion and the fastest growing IIoT business community!
