Interest In IoT Growing Strongly
Record attendance at Internet of Things World 2016, which claims to be the world’s largest and most comprehensive IoT event, shows just how fast interest in IoT is growing.
Organisers of the event, held in Santa Clara from May 10-12, reported a 74 percent increase in attendee numbers from the 2015 event, to more than 10,000, and a more than tenfold increase from the 2014 event, which drew less than 1000 visitors.
The latest event attracted 375 speakers and more than 150 exhibitors and sponsors.
The organisers are already looking for speakers for next year’s event, which will be held on May 16-18, also in Santa Clara. – Stuart Corner
