The LoRa Alliance has formally introduced the LoRaWAN World Expo taking place at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France on June 9th to 10th, 2020. The event will celebrate the LoRa Alliance’s 5th Anniversary by looking ahead to the technology’s future.
Featuring world-renowned technologists and futurists alongside the next generation of global IoT leaders shaping tomorrow, the event will address how IoT is changing the way we live and work and how our lives can be improved.
Speakers and exhibitors will also address the extraordinary impact LoRaWAN is making in sustainability, safety and efficiencies across a range of areas that impact quality of life and the world we live in.
The event will build on the technology’s massive growth over the past five years. Last year alone, LoRaWAN led the market with massive IoT deployments rolling out at scale, cementing the technology as the leading low power wide area networking (LPWAN) standard. For 2019, the LoRa Alliance reported 33% growth in LoRaWAN network operators and 43% growth in country availability, as well as nearly 25% growth in the number of LoRaWAN Certified devices available to the market.
“LoRaWAN World Expo offers the best opportunity this year to engage with the LoRaWAN community and experience in person how we are connecting a smarter planet,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “With an expected audience of more than 2,000 attendees, there is no better opportunity to see how companies are leveraging LoRaWAN in their businesses and achieving strong ROIs. Importantly, we will share our vision for the next five years and the future of LoRaWAN and how it will empower sustainable IoT businesses to maximize efficiency, improve quality of life and protect the planet’s resources.”
This event will open with keynotes from LoRa Alliance leadership and leading industry visionaries. Technical and vertical market tracks will showcase the latest technology development and how applications are leveraging LoRaWAN to achieve significant ROI. The LoRaWAN for Good session will look at the most impactful projects around the globe improving quality of life and the world we live in.
The Next Generation of LoRaWAN will feature presentations from students and under-30 engineers showcasing their ideas on the future of the technology. Day 2 will feature an AI hackathon to showcase how data from LoRaWAN devices can be implemented into AI solutions to solve real-world challenges.
