IOTSWC will recognise the most innovative and impactful projects developed over the year with the IOT Solutions Awards. A total of seven awards will be presented: one for each of the tracks of the congress programme (manufacturing; energy and utilities; connected transport; building & infrastructures; healthcare; and open industry) and a final award for the best testbed at the show. IOTSWC will also be hosting a Brokerage Event to promote networking among professionals from different industrial sectors through business meetings to stimulate knowledge transfer, R&D and the search for suppliers or business partners. A Hackathon with over 250 students from a dozen universities will also take place, being tasked with providing IoT solutions to various challenges. At the same time, a series of side events organised by sponsors, exhibitors, brand ambassadors and other partners will be taking place at IOTSWC.
