Security of Things Theatre

More devices connecting to the internet means increased potential for firewall breaches, and more pain... or does it? IoT promises to revolutionise the world, but how do we secure that connected world of devices and the data produced. This programme has one eye on the future, but the other is on the now, exploring the security of the Internet of Things, with real world case studies and insight from acclaimed experts in this new and innovative field of technology.
IOT Audience

Data Management & Integration Theatre

Combining data from disparate sources across technical infrastructure and business process, and transforming it into meaningful and valuable information is a challenge most businesses face. Data integration involves combining data residing in different sources and providing users with a unified view of this data. Offering the expertise of speakers from various industries sharing their own experiences in data integration and management, attendees will be able to easily relate to case studies and apply these learnings to their own work.

Transformation of Industries Theatre

This stream will look at how enterprise software is integrated with data flows from IoT. This disruptive transformation is driving new insights into how products are performing in near real time. If leveraged correctly, this can drive new business models and opportunities, analysing data and triggering business processes and transactions, automating entire processes and streaming through organisations. This transformation is not only defined by objects but also by connected people though usability. Together, IoT, usability and mobility will define transformation for industry.

KTN InnOvate Launchpad

The Launchpad is the dedicated zone for start-ups. Run in partnership with the KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network), who have underwritten some of the costs for their member companies, it was a great success in 2017 with 16 companies.

Each company has the opportunity to make a 10 minute pitch to an audience of around 20 (seats), although this number almost doubled on some occasions.

Shared Cities Showcase

The Showcase is a leading resource for technological, regulatory and commercial insight in this sector, as well as the destination for developing collaborations and business opportunities.

The programme will be delivered by city managers, business experts and academics and will be focused on bridging the knowledge gap between the complexities of technological innovation and the delivery of practical commercially viable services.

  • "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
