Conference Overview

The unique, invitation-only hosted format of IoT6 Exchange, conducted in an upscale resort setting like the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, provides an engaging platform for use case presentations and keynotes, small group discussions, industry speci‍‍‍fic and vertical-focused topics as well as one-on-one conversations with leading vendors and peers on the latest solutions, strategies and topics around the Internet of Things within the enterprise.

IoT6 Exchange has many avenues for our attendees to gain insight into how these investments will improve their overall digital strategy. Key aspects include:

Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Panels and General Sessions:

  • IoT6 Exchange keeps things simple by having only one conference track to focus on. Attendees will sit in on a variety of sessions covering the latest topics, industry news and respected insights from leading solution providers, industry experts and end user executives.

Case Study Boardroom Sessions:

  • These highly interactive sessions presented by solution providers to an intimate group of executives give an inside view of the implementation and strategy of an actual customer use case.  These sessions not only provide the vendors with feedback on end user wants/needs, but also promote candid discussions for end users to gain perspective from their peers within various industries.

1:1 Meetings:

  • Our 1:1 Meeting Zone allows our end user attendees, solution providers, and industry experts the perfect opportunity to connect with one another for 20 minute face-to-face meetings, which makes sourcing solutions painless for our executive attendees and makes connecting with prospective clientele cost-effective for our sponsors. Respected industry analysts and experts will also be present to discuss your needs and to help you move your own digital strategy forward.

Networking Receptions:

  • Connections can be made at a traditional trade show, but with our unique format, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to network over 2.5 days and dive more deeply into discussions that cannot be had walking a trade show floor. Regarding the number of end user attendees and solution providers, we believe that quality over quantity adds a higher value to the conversations had, because only the most-qualified attendees are invited to attend and only vendors that are capable of delivering solutions to major enterprises are eligible to sponsor.

Adopting innovative and smart infrastructure will enable businesses and government to enhance asset, infrastructure, and building performance. These physical structures are transforming into intelligence, cognitive, and predictive assets through existing and emerging technologies including Internet of Things, machine-to-machine communications, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, robotics, and deep learning.

‍‍‍This spring’s, “Advancing Smart Infrastructure & IoT” IoT6 Exchange Summit will bring together thought leaders, executives, advisory board members, and vendors to explore, learn, exchange best-in-class ideas, technology, solutions, and solve real issues around smart infrastructure. From retrofitting legacy assets and infrastructure to building smart and intelligence infrastructure from the ground up, this 2.5 day event will be hard hitting, actionable, and bring smart infrastructure ideas to fruition.  We will capture all the technology and innovation elements as we transition from unintelligent, static physical structures and assets to intelligence, learning, and digital structures and assets.
