Let’s face it: there is no shortage of IoT conferences in 2015. So why is this one worth your time?

A unique focus

Audience at IoT15 IoT15 will help anyone getting their hands dirty building real IoT projects. Rather like the internet of a decade ago, there is an emerging group of people creating new companies and new ways of doing business with the Internet of Things.

Ten years ago, entrepreneurs had to work it out for themselves. Today, we want to accelerate the process by connecting entrepreneurs, investors and corporate players and helping them learn from each other.

What happens at BLN IoT forums

In the room at IoT15 you will find founders, funders and big companies, debating what works, where the opportunities are, and how to deal with the challenges that face the market. You will take home new connections and new ideas. Showcase your project, find new applications and learn from your peers.

The programme combines keynote speakers, discussion debates, short presentations from unknown Ones to Watch, and short case studies on real life applications of the Internet of Things

Here’s what we’re doing to make this happen:

  • Finding contributors who can speak with authority on the opportunities and the challenges of the IoT market and what it takes to create successful products and projects
  • Promoting the event to an audience of founders, funders and corporate doers – people building thriving IOT companies and markets
  • Designing a programme to encourage connections between delegates, to demonstrate the best and newest IoT technologies and to highlight new use cases for the technology
  • Creating opportunities for delegates that go beyond the two days in Cambridge through online and offline media coverage – before, during and after

The BLN approach

For nearly a decade we have run conferences that help entrepreneurs work on, not in their business. Help people take the time to understand how their market works and how to be successful in it.

This is the third year we have run the IoT forum and as the industry becomes more complex, we are trying to build an event where founders can come and learn from their peers about what works. And what doesn’t.
