M2M Forum 2015, which took place in Assago (Milan) on April 29-30th, confirmed his status of being the most important European exhibition devoted to the machine-to-machine communication by registering 20% more of visitors. A leadership strengthened by a planning every year more international of the event, organized by Innovability, which last year saw 1258 attendees coming from 21 European and extra-European countries. M2M Forum is part of the Disruptive Week Milan (www.disruptiveweek.com): a week full of appointments on emerging ICT Technologies (IoT, Wearable, Robotics, etc.) where also citizens will be involved.
One of nowadays main challenges is to discover potential areas of application and identify new digital supply chains within it. Iot Now, the new 2016 M2M Forum area, finds its purpose in creating a bridge between the traditional industries such as Electronics, Industrial Automation and the emerging areas such as Web 2.0, Maker, Crowdesign, also touching IT and Telco. In particular, we’ll discuss the relationship between Smart Things, UX user experience and Design according to the idea that “smart things must be beautiful and beautiful things must be smart”. This idea is strongly related to the Italian high quality hand-craft tradition and culture which leads to getting smarter and smarter thanks to the new phenomena of FabLabs.
In co-location with M2M Forum, has been held the second edition of M2M+ Industry Summit that last year saw 120 attendees from 13 foreign countries among which Turkey, Netherlands, Hungary, Switzerland, United Kingdom expanding its international horizons with India and Israel.
