IoT Think Tank 2020

March 4-5, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden

How do you overcome the challenges scaling IoT projects? How do you make sense of all the buzz in the market about LTE-M and NB-IoT? And, how are other market leaders thinking in their IoT projects? These topics and much more will be explored during Telenor Connexion’s forthcoming customer event: IoT Think Tank 2020.

The aim of the event is to create an inspiring forum to learn more about the underlying trends shaping IoT from experts, leaders, academics and peers. In addition, the event is a great opportunity to exchange learnings, gain access to recent research, and make valuable connections.

This is the fifth year we’ve hosted the IoT Think Tank. Each event is growing from strength to strength. This year we’re structuring the event in a user group format which means we will combine overall strategic insights with tangible issues that we know many of you have experienced or are experiencing.

The event consists of shared sessions combined with breakout sessions on various issues. The topics discussed will range from a comprehensive overview of the latest IoT research, evolving market trends and emerging technologies, along with practical insights from digital innovators.

Polestar, Ericsson, Grundfos, Northstream and Sony Networks Communications Europe are among this year’s guest speakers. Please find the current agenda below.

Date: Tuesday-Wednesday, March 4-5
