Smart IoT's best event yet

Record breaking numbers of IT professionals gathered in ExCeL, London two weeks ago for the 2018 edition of Smart IoT and its co-located events: Cloud Expo Europe, Cloud Security Expo, BBig Data and Data Centre World.

The five co-located events drew in visitors from different countries in industries as diverse as healthcare, finance, food and retail. Visitors were able to enjoy access to the UK's most extensive supplier exhibition and a world-leading conference programme across the two-day event.

Record breaking numbers of IT professionals gathered in ExCeL, London two weeks ago for the 2018 edition of Big Data World and its co-located events: Cloud Expo Europe, Cloud Security Expo, Smart IoT and Data Centre World.

The five co-located events drew in visitors from different countries in industries as diverse as healthcare, finance, food and retail. Visitors were able to enjoy access to the UK's most extensive supplier exhibition and a world-leading conference programme across the two-day event.

With the event covering the entire technology ecosystem, from the largest data centres down to the smallest sensors that populate the smart cities of the future, thousands of IT decision makers from organisations such as Ralph Lauren, BT, The Daily Mail, Sky, Google, Post Office and Disney were in attendance in the ExCeL halls. 

Recognising the importance of cross-industry collaboration and discussion, the show prioritised a number of key streams. This included a focus on real-world applications of rapidly emerging technologies.

With huge media buzz and industry interest, speakers and panels at the show discussed and put into practice in real situations, with real-life cases and testaments from the people at the frontline.

Thomas Standley, Managing Director of Technology, at CloserStill Media, the organisers behind the event, said: "This year's event demonstrated the dedication that our audience has for the IT industry, with record numbers coming to the ExCeL to learn, buy and network. It was a great two days and I'm really looking forward to building an even more successful show in 2019."

The 2019 editions of Cloud Expo Europe, Cloud Security Expo, Smart IoT London, Big Data World and Data Centre World will be held on 12-13 March 2019 at ExCel London – save the date.

Testimonials

  • "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
