151 Advisors list of must attend Wireless, M2M /IoT events and trade shows for 2018!
As the 151 Advisors Team puts together our 2018 trade show list where we will either attend, speak at or exhibit. With the list of IoT and wireless shows increasing on a worldwide basis, we have selected this list based on our experience of attending them in the past and my speaking engagements. Shows are built for networking and education. Whether you are a vendor, enterprise account, retailer, in sales or marketing, these events are very valuable in numerous ways.
Latest stats tell a story of over 60% of all IoT pilots end in failure. If the enterprise accounts attended the right targeted shows, the knowledge and ability to interact with the IoT ecosystem including carriers, hardware providers, app developers and integrators, can reduce the risk of moving past the pilot stages and moving to full deployments.
Many vendors come to these events with their latest “stuff”. I sometimes compare the products being shown at IoT shows to your favorite car show… you get to see the latest models and options with the thoughts of you driving one of them. At IoT shows, you see products, innovative services, and apps that show you just how valuable the data and information can be and just how it can help you at home, your car or business.
You may have heard me say this at a number of events/trade shows throughout the year in one of my many presentations, moderating, panelist sessions “The key to having a successful deployment in this rapidly growing IoT Industry, is education at every level of the IoT food chain.” There is currently a significant lack of understanding and education across the IoT ecosystem. The educational sessions, latest updates, and use cases from top industry thought leaders and vendors at these events could be the difference between your products, services, and solutions being a success or failing! Download the full list to find events and trade shows are relevant to your business, for ease we have added category type, location, and dates (the exact dates of these events are subject to change by the organizers.)
