Summer is rapidly approaching which means it’s time to get ready for yet another Spring Season Final for Swedish IoT. It is a dear tradition since 2012 that the makers and shakers of Swedish IoT gather to update each other on the latest development in different industries, applications and technologies by sharing real-life cases from the trenches, and to touch base with friends in our rapidly growing ecosystem. The formats for our rendez-vous has varied over time mainly depending on the resources available to plan and run the events. Like last year SMSE will host a half-day event at THINGS in Stockholm followed back-to-back by burgers and beer into the night. It is an invitation only event and we are limited to 60 seats. 

We have planned for 12 real-life cases and 3 insights and we will start present speakers as we confirm them. Note that speakers only pay like attendees and are selected due to what they propose to present. The speakers this year are: FLIR Systems, Telia Company, Northstream, Ekkono, Attentec, WSI, Imagimob, MTEK Industry, Gimic, Stream Analyze, IoT Sweden, Cargo Beacon, H&D Wireless and Voi Technologies. 

The event is organised by the alliance for Swedish IoT companies, SMSE, a self-funded collaborative effort since 2011 established to educate the market, promote Sweden as a good place to look for IoT experience and solutions and to help the members find partners, customers and investors primarily abroad. Today we have some 50 members and almost 20 partners and we have been able to create a quite a lot of interest abroad. Our eight years with joint efforts in SMSE have helped create the largest genuine IoT eco-system in the world. THINGS is partner to SMSE and co-organise the STHLM IoT Summit. 

Seats will be allocated to SMSE companies, members and prospects of THINGS Enterprise Circle, selected industry representatives, international guests and presenters. All presentations are in English. The cost to attend is 2000 SEK including food and beverages. 

This event is always rapidly filling up so make sure to sign up right away if you want to enjoy our IoT Summit. We have almsot 50 attendees now including people from ABB, ACAL BFI, Acando, Acte, AI Hub, Akademiska Hus, Assa Abloy, Attentec, Berotec, CargoBeacon, CEI, CKHIOD, Combain, Combient, Coor, Crosser, Efeso, Ekkono, Gimic, GSMA, H&D Wireless, Husqvarna, Imagimob, Infineon Technologies, Infracontrol, IoT Norway, Luminar Ventures, MTEK Industry, Nexus Group, Nordic Alpha Partners, Northstream, Prevas, Sandvik, Sensing Labs, Siemens, Stream Analyze, Target Global, Tekniska Verken, Telia Company, 3 Sverige, Utvyakta Solutions, Voi Technologies and WSI.

We will open the doors at noon for registration and business mingle, the presentations will start at 13:00 and around 17:30 we will close to the conference and focus on the beers and burgers. We will have space available for some “tables” for companies to gather the attendees around, and we will have space for some roll-ups as well.
