Along with Brigitte Zypries, the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Scott Amyx (CEO, Amyx+) and Eric Goodness (VP, Gartner), who will take a look into the future of M2M, have already confirmed their participation.

The programme is full with more than 40 presentations and talks, panel discussions, the M2M Alliance’s Academic Day, guided tours, and a large evening event. Additionally, startups have the chance to attract attention with pitching sessions. Among other things, international partnerships, the internet of things (IoT), Industry 4.0, standardisation, data management, and security all belong to the most important event topics.
