GSMA IoT Summit, Mobile World Congress Shanghai
The large-scale deployment of IoT technology is gradually transforming many aspects of the way we live and work, and the number of smart and connected devices will continue to soar in 2016. The GSMA predicts that there will be 27 billion connected devices by 2020, and 10 billion devices will be mobile connected. But there is still a long way to go from the early adopter phase to mass market acceptance. Issues such as cost, interactivity, security and interoperability will challenge the development of the future market.
At the IoT Summit, attendees will have the chance to explore the latest market opportunities in the IoT and discover key enablers to realise the connected future.
The event is open to all Gold/Silver/Industry Exhibition Pass (IEP) holders. Please note that you must have an IEP pass or above and apply to attend this programme. Pre-approved application does not guarantee a place; places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
