Industry of Things World 2018: Beyond the hype

The fourth edition of the award-winning Industry of Things World was unanimously characterized as a successful conference. More than 800 registered attendees gathered in Berlin to shape the future of the Industrial Internet during 3 event days filled with case studies, networking sessions, a start-up innovation lab, an IIoT Bootcamp, a hackathon as well as a factory tour.

With keynotes on the AI revolution, ongoing global IIoT manufacturing transformation projects, innovation driven growth, putting IIoT and digital at the center of your operations or powering the next phase of industrial IoT systems for critical infrastructure, one thing became clear: the Industrial Internet of Things is here to stay. There is still a need for discussion and planning, but most importantly the need for collaboration across job functions and with different stakeholders to maximize the effectiveness of these technologies and tools.
