My name is Gianluigi Ferri, CEO Innovability,  M2M Forum producer and organiser. I would like to present to you  an important news of this event.

Born in 2002, M2M Forum, was the first and only Machine-to-Machine event (before the present Internet of Things). Since 2010 it has become the main italian IoT event, point of reference for all those experts who operate in this field. It also has an international side represented by IoT Now conference.

In September 2016, Innovability launched the new figure of the Chief IoT Officer inside a new and exclusive networking event called  IoT Convivio. Innovability will also be the first company talking about Cognitive IoT and Blockchain IoT, confirming its status of most innovative and disruptive player in the italian Internet of Things world. 

For this reason, after 15 successful editions, the time has come to make a further step: M2M Forum changes its name to become IOTHINGS able to create the italian main event about Internet of Things as well as to be one of the international and most significant meetings of main interest for top players, VIP speakers, associations and end-user companies.

I hope this event will be interesting for the italian and international IoT community for the next 15 years. Many Iot projects will affect people and company’s ways of living, many evolutions will be applied to “things”: from artificial intelligence to robotics, through virtual reality.

In order to make this event better and more useful, all critics, advice and tips are important and are accepted: so please contact me through Linkedin or write me an email:
