IoT India Congress

14-15 September 2017, Bengaluru, IN


ETSI is pleased to endorse the IoT India Congress 2017, the Platform of Platforms for empowering business outcomes using the Internet of Things. Beyond cutting edge knowledge sharing, this is the only platform that can readily impact businesses / revenues not only for the entire ecosystem of technology business beginning from chip manufacturers, gateway providers, telecom operators, system integrators, IoT platform and solution providers but also those segments / user communities who might not yet look at IoT as a business game changer for them.

It brings together end-to-end ecosystem of the Internet of Things – to work with each other and speed the IoT movement in India. The platform achieves this through CEO meets, product & solutions discovery for SMEs, funding opportunities and mentorships for start-ups and academic projects, idea discovery avenues for VCs and incubators and policy inputs for government agencies.

Awards recognise thought leaders in the IoT space as well as start-ups doing excellent work. It is also the place to see the future technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Virtual and Immersive Reality in action.
Relevant Government departments, Industry associations and professional bodies in these spaces have already pledged support to this platform. The deliberations from this event will serve as policy and position papers to the government, potentially impacting policy decisions pertaining to IoT.
