TiE Bangalore and IESA hosted the third edition of IoTNext on November 8 & 9, 2017 at Hotel Park Plaza, Bangalore.

From its inception in 2015, IoTNext has grown in number of participants and has turned out to be a ‘must-attend’ event for IoT practitioners and enthusiasts, making it the top IoT event in India.

IoTNext 2015 focused on the emerging possibilities of Digital Transformation, with Internet of Things (IoT) and IndiaStack introduced for the first time. IoTNext 2016 focused on the realities on the ground, the ongoing pilots, going beyond just connected devices with Analytics and AI and highlighting the edge node security concerns in partnership with the CISO platform.

The recently concluded third anniversary of IoTNext was a grand success with 900+ attendees, 60+ Speakers, 40+ startups and exhibitors, introduction of “Fresh Thinking” on IoT Security and our flagship IoTNext Awards Night. We also released the 2nd edition of the IoT Startup Directory at IoTNext 2017, that showcased 100% growth from last year and now has close to 1000 Indian IoT startups listed. (www.iotforindia.org).
