IOT Asia 2014 Opening Ceremony
Themed “Deriving Value from the Internet of Things”, the Internet of Things Asia (IoT Asia) returns in 2015 with over 85 speakers and more than 40 exhibitors
Event to showcase IoT integration opportunities for businesses and smart cities
24 March 2015, SINGAPORE – In the past year, momentum has gathered to apply Internet of Things (IoT) technology and solutions to industry, beyond commercial and retail applications. The IoT industry is rapidly growing, especially in countries that have a manufacturing base with pervasive wireless and wireline broadband infrastructure such as Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. IDC Asia Pacific estimates that the IoT market in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APeJ) will grow to USD 862 billion in 2020, with some 8.98 billion autonomous intelligent/embedded systems, or “things”, connected to the internet by then in APeJ.
It is in this context that SingEx Exhibitions and the Singapore Industrial Automation Association (SIAA) have jointly organised the second annual edition of the Internet of Things Asia (IoT Asia 2015). Themed “Deriving Value from the Internet of Things”, IoT Asia 2015 aims to explore how the Internet of Things can transform business, government and societies in a manner that builds value beyond monetisation. The event comprises of a conference and an exhibition which will be held on 8-9 April 2015 at MAX Atria @ Singapore EXPO.
Industry stakeholders will offer their perspectives of IoT technologies, cutting through the hype to offer design approaches and considerations, as well as applicable solutions that drive competitiveness and innovation. The speakers, along with exhibitors, will be on hand to address the challenges of potential IoT technologies adopters.
Mr Rudolf Maly, Business Architect for Idoneum Concept in Germany urges, “IoT Asia gets thought leaders and practitioners from all over the world together and connects to the local IoT innovation community – I’m looking forward to hear about new IoT scenarios and to expand my network.”
At the IoT Asia 2015 conference, more than 85 speakers from 16 countries will discuss how to apply, evaluate and implement IoT technologies. Key areas that are expected to drive growth in the industry are addressed in the programme content, which will touch on Smart Buildings, Retail, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics and Smart Cities. IDC Asia Pacific will present the findings of an industry-wide survey on the state of IoT adoption in Asia Pacific, which provides indicative trends and directional insights for IoT's development and proliferation in the region.
The IoT Asia exhibition will feature 3 country pavilions, with 2 new entrants from Singapore and The Netherlands, in addition to returnee Japan. Over 40 vendors of hardware, software and solutions will showcase the latest IoT technologies, products and services available in the market at the exhibition and will help trade visitors brainstorm how to implement ideas, or explain how their IoT technologies could be integrated to into existing business operations, in a manner that boosts productivity and lowers operational costs.
This year, IoT Asia will mark Global IoT Day on 9 April and the day’s founder, Mr Rob Van Kranenburg, who is also the Founder of the Internet of Things Council, who will be at the event. During the evening of the 9th, the ArtScience Late series at the ArtScience Museum will also mark Global IoT Day by offering free entry to its museum between 7pm-10pm.
Post show, on Friday 10 April, a site visit has been arranged to demonstrate IoT technologies in practice, which will be hosted between 9am and 5pm. The tour includes features visits to Daikin to witness how IoT is aiding intelligent control solutions; TabSquare, which provides digital menus on devices for restaurants; and SAP’s Hyperconnected Asia Showcase, where you can see the Internet of Things in action.
