Hi Rebels,

      We are bringing some summer flare to our August event as most of us are travelling a lot this time of year. We are also delving into the Future of IoT, IIoT from industrial to Enhancing your day to day existence. 

 In total, we forecast there will be 34 billion devices connected to the internet by 2020, up from 10 billion in 2015. IoT devices will account for 24 billion, while traditional computing devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, etc.) will comprise 10 billion. Nearly $6 trillion will be spent on IoT solutions over the next five years.
