Discover what our attendees had to say about their experience!


This was a great launch to a valuable show, in a growing market that is increasingly a part of day-to-day business and life. As we come out of a never before experienced locked down society, the IoT show organizers have shown the rejuvenation, and value of a well-run exhibition and conference. As the show will grow, and the value expands, I would recommend this as well spent time and marketing dollars.
