RFID Journal Introduces Internet of Things Conference
The new event will be co-located with RFID Journal LIVE! 2015, which will be held on Apr. 16-17, in San Diego, Calif.
Nov 12, 2014—
RFID Journal announced today that it is launching the Internet of Things Conference, to be co-located with the RFID Journal LIVE! 2015 conference and exhibition, taking place in San Diego, Calif. The Internet of Things Conference will focus on helping companies use IoT technologies to add value to their products, engage consumers in new and exciting ways, gather data about environmental conditions, create enhanced service-level agreements, and develop new business models.
The IoT Conference, to be held on Apr. 16-17, will feature leading end users of Internet of Things technologies, as well as several leading providers of IoT solutions. The event will also include an IoT pavilion in the LIVE! exhibit hall.
"Clearly, companies are looking for ways to connect their products, assets and environments to the Internet, in order to add value and improve their operations," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "RFID and IoT technologies are complementary, so we believe there will be a lot of synergy between the two events."
The IoT Conference will cover the technologies required to connect "things" to the Internet. These technologies include ZigBee radios, Wi-Fi, machine-to-machine software and cloud computing. Speakers will address both business-to-consumer and business-to-business applications across many industries.
IoT technologies are evolving rapidly, Roberti says, and it's not just high-tech firms, such as Apple and Google, that are leading the way. Established industrial companies like GE Aviation and Trane are using such technologies to enable their products to report on their performance, thereby improving efficiencies and lowering costs.
Attendees can register for the Internet of Things Conference separately and visit the RFID Journal LIVE! exhibit hall, or they can opt for an All-Access Pass entitling them to attend sessions at either event. "This really is a unique opportunity for companies to hear from other end users about the value that IoT technologies can deliver today," says Mary Catherine O'Connor, the editor of Internet of Things Journal, RFID Journal's new website devoted to IoT technologies.
Those registering early will be able to save more than $300 off regular rates. Additional information regarding the Internet of Things Conference or RFID Journal LIVE! 2015 is available at the events' websites, rfidjournalevents.com/iot and rfidjournalevents.com/live.
