With the number of connected devices set to increase worldwide from the current level of 4.5 billion to 50 billion by 2050, making machine to machine technologies a key focus across sectors, this event comes at a time the internet of things has reached a critical juncture. The UK possesses a strong foundation in technology and innovation to take a leadership position, given the correct level of investment and policies at a national and local level.
But to achieve this, areas of technology, business models, security, consumer psychology, leadership and regulation will all have to be addressed and will require the involvement of government, industry and academia working together to devise scalable solutions and to establish a market in this new sector.
Bringing together over 350 key decision makers from across industry, academia and government, this conference is a must attend for those involved in accelerating the evolution of the Future Internet in the UK. You will have the chance to hear from 20 speakers who are experts in the field, alongside 25 service providers with solutions to the challenges you face.
The Internet of Things Conference will centre on how opportunities are going to arise when we harness innovation, shared R&D/ economies of scale, systems transformation and relevant regulations such as the EU ITS Directive, as the UK seeks to obtain a foothold in a market that has an estimated future worth of £200billion.
