Through a combination of executive thought leader keynotes, interactive and thought-provoking panel discussions, and impactful case study presentations, this IoT Exchange Smart Cities will seek to answer the following questions:

Summit Overview

The unique, invitation-only hosted format of IoT Exchange Smart Cities, conducted in an upscale resort setting like the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, provides an engaging platform for use case presentations and keynotes, small group discussions, industry specific and vertical-focused topics as well as one-on-one conversations with leading vendors and peers on the latest solutions, strategies and topics around the Internet of Things within the enterprise.

IoT Exchange has many avenues for our attendees to gain insight into how these investments will improve their overall digital strategy. Key aspects include:

Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Panels and General Sessions:

IoT Exchange keeps things simple by having only one conference track to focus on. Attendees will sit in on a variety of sessions covering the latest topics, industry news and respected insights from leading solution providers, industry experts and end user executives.

Case Study Boardroom Sessions:

These highly interactive sessions presented by solution providers to an intimate group of executives give an inside view of the implementation and strategy of an actual customer use case. These sessions not only provide the vendors with feedback on end user wants/needs, but also promote candid discussions for end users to gain perspective from their peers within various industries.

1:1 Meetings:

Our 1:1 Meeting Zone allows our end user attendees, solution providers, and industry experts the perfect opportunity to connect with one another for 20 minute face-to-face meetings, which makes sourcing solutions painless for our executive attendees and makes connecting with prospective clientele cost-effective for our sponsors. Respected industry analysts and experts will also be present to discuss your needs and to help you move your own digital strategy forward. Participants schedule meetings of their choice online prior to the event.

Networking Receptions:

  • Connections can be made at a traditional trade show, but with our unique format, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to network and dive more deeply into discussions that cannot be had walking a trade show floor. Regarding the number of end user attendees and solution providers, we believe that quality over quantity adds a higher value to the conversations and networking.

Smart city technologies and solutions are being recognized and followed by government, communities, industry, and universities. A smart city includes bringing together individuals, communities, smart infrastructure, advanced technology and IoT, and sustainability practices to advance and progress quality of life, improve city efficiencies, better manage resources, protect and secure citizens and assets, and improve overall governance. Cities can’t be smarter unless they are ‘better,’ but filtering through the noise and deciding on where cities need to be better is the first step. Only then, can enabling technologies such as IoT begin to support a city in becoming ‘smart.’

The Internet of things (IoT) and other emerging technologies enable the ongoing data and information exchange, communications, and actionable intelligence to support in tracking, monitoring, governance, location, identification, security, and management. IoT supports in bringing together the physical and digital worlds with mass quantities of connected devices and sensors in cars, homes, buildings, roads, and other municipality assets. The end goal is to provide affordable, cost effective technologies to improve the city and scale across infrastructure and assets.
