    Separating this pandemic from predecessors is that information technology is firmly on our side. In the absence of sport, Netflix is keeping families entertained. FaceTime or Zoom are connecting us safely from a distance while ordinary socialising presents a risk. And a plethora of cloud-based workplace tools are channelling business productivity from newly-distributed workforces.

    Nobody doubted our dependency on connectivity before coronavirus, but the degree to which the thread of the internet holding the fabric of society together during the crisis is striking. While restaurants, pubs, cinemas, cafes and more turned off their lights, data centres, network operations centres and internet exchanges geared up for an unprecedented rise in traffic.

    The Covid-19 pandemic has led many companies to alter the way they conduct business, in many cases evolving to a new way of running operations. Some businesses have been fortunate where operating models have stayed in line with "Business as Usual". However, in most cases businesses have either had to adapt or evolve into a new operating model.

    Information security and cyber defence teams have a challenge ahead of them, they will not only have to run normal day-to-day operations but now must understand the new threat vectors that are being introduced that widen the threat landscape, and work to minimise cyber risk so businesses stay protected.

  • "Smart IoT has helped bring together a community of practitioners to talk about IoT and intelligent edge, develop new ideas and create networks. Smart IoT differentiates itself through excellent speakers talking on relevant topics and the quality of the delegates. I think every conversation has been valuable. First time I have run out of business cards by 3pm!"
    Intelligent Edge Lead, HPe
  • "Arrow see Smart IoT and Cloud Expo Europe as a strategic event where we have the opportunity to bring the entire force of Arrow’s business to a place with customers relevant to all of our divisions and show the scale and ability of our One Arrow strategy"
    CTO, Arrow
  • "The show is good, we were here last year and we’ve definitely been busier on our stand than we were. It’s been a good morning so far, it’s important for us to get across, not just our technology, but the company as a whole and we’re meeting with lots of different people from lots of different verticals so this is key. We’re already talking about about booking a stand for next year."
    Regional Sales Director UK & Ireland, Telit
  • "We were looking for return on investment on our stand and activities at Smart IoT, so we set our targets of how many strong contacts we needed to make at the show. The teams at Closerstill Media and KTN really got behind us and we exceeded our targets."
    CEO, SmartWorld Connect
  • "It’s our first time at the show – we’ve found it very illuminating – to see what the industry is doing and to see how fast the industry is moving. It’s enabled us to promote into new areas, into new people. And, still enabled us to have that understanding from the customer base of where Siemens is, and what we do and how we fit into the world of digitisation"
    Business Director Data Services- Siemens
