The global value of the IoT sector is predicted to exceed €34.2bn a year by 2020, with an expectation that 25bn devices will be connected by 2025.
Recent investment and activity locally make it pretty clear that the conditions are ripe for Ireland to embrace the IoT revolution and emerge as a 4th industrial revolution powerhouse.
It is against this background that iQuest and the Sunday Business Post are delighted to announce the staging of their IoT (Internet of Things) Summit 2016. This second annual summit will show delegates the potential of IoT, how it is impacting business models and the technology and security challenges to overcome. It will bring the key people in the ecosystem together to do business and learn from each other. Attendees will listen to and meet people who are doing things, not talking about things, in the Internet of Things.
Some of the main topics to be discussed at the summit include how companies can innovate using IoT successfully; How can IoT transform business models; What are the key investment opportunities; How can you demonstrate ROI in IoT; How can large companies and startups partner effectively; How will the IoT ecosystem be built and who will be the key players; How can you distinguish the jargon and myth from the real?
A comprehensive, full day programme of great presentations, panel debates, exhibits, demonstrations and real world case studies, with a focus on helping our audience understand how the Internet of Things will change everything.
The whole IoT ecosystem including:
- End user companies
- Software and application developers
- Equipment and hardware manufacturers
- Components and chipset manufacturers
- Integration and interoperability specialists
- Product design companies
- Financial services and investors
- Educational institutions

To ensure the best possible summit experience for our attendees, we have introduced some exciting and innovative features for this year including:
One of the key challenges for any IT focussed event organiser is how technical do you get? Some delegates really want to get into the nuts and bolts, while others just want the broad strokes big picture. We have addressed this problem at the IoT Summit by introducing 'Huddle Zones'. The agenda sessions will be broad strokes with the speakers then making themselves available in the 'Huddle Zone' for anyone who has any questions or wishes to get into the subject in greater depth.
Amongst other things, we want this event to give a voice and exposure to some exciting start-ups. But there are so many...too many to fit them all on the agenda. We have decided to use video to overcome this problem. In a short video presentation, we will introduce you to some ground-breaking start-ups making waves in the IoT space. If you are then interested in finding out more about them, you can visit their stand in the Demo Zone. We believe this format offers a great opportunity for start-ups to introduce themselves to the ecosystem and for investors, and companies looking for partners, to get a quick snapshot of what is happening in the IoT start-up space.
To ensure you get a great networking experience at the summit, we will be trailing the networking app Fuseami at the event.
Many conferences these days are death by Powerpoint (we've been guilty of it ourselves in the past). This event however will be a Powerpoint free zone. We want our presenters speaking to you and not to a slide. This is a challenge i'm sure our speakers will have fun with and make for a better overall conference experience for everyone as alternatives such as video, animation, props and God knows what else is employed.
The IoT Summit is taking place in Croke Park for a reason. It is a connected stadium! And, our agenda includes a presentation by Tomás O’Miocháin, Chief Information Officer, Páirc an Chrócaigh, on what makes the stadium so 'smart'.Tweets by @IOTSummitIRL
