CESIS is different to other international IoT conferences: Our speakers will give deep insights in all strategy aspects of the IoT industry but also technical concepts and solutions will be focused. Short promotional speeches are not our business. Technical quality in all presentations –even in the strategy and market focused presentations will be the guarantee for a focused auditorium on a high level.

But high level and technical focused speeches are just one side of CESIS –the other is networking. Due to the congress concept the event offers special opportunities to get in contact with experts, business partners and investors from different industries. The options include world cafés and inspiring panel discussions. The cross-industry focus is meant to be at CESIS to make sure that everybody can learn from IoT pioneers and innovation advocates. Participants get the chance to benefit from best practice examples of different industries and apply the demonstrated solutions to their own business.
