Showcase at the Things Conference Norwich

Open date: Thursday 30 August 2018   Close date: Thursday 27 September 2018

The Things Conference is a two day conference focused on digital transformation through adopting smart technology that enables connectivity between devices. The event will explore topics on IoT, data analysis, robots, space, DevOps, ethical open data, smart city standards and a whole bunch of use cases for LoRaWAN.

The upcoming Things Conference will take place in Norwich on 15th and 16th October 2018, at St​. Andrews Hall in Norwich, Norfolk and will bring together innovative businesses across the sector who are already using LoRaWAN enabled devices as well as those seeking to learn more about LoRaWAN and LPWAN solutions.

LoRa technology is emerging to become the main method of communication to create smarter connected communities due to its ability to transmit data over vast distances with no subscription fees.

Digital Catapult’s Things Connected programme has partnered with The Things Network (TTN). This collaboration brings together two well-established initiatives in the UK, creating Britain’s largest free-to-use LoRaWAN network and innovation community. As part of this collaboration we’re looking for startups to join us at The Things Conference Norwich to showcase and demonstrate their solutions.

Why you should get involved

Digital Catapult will be hosting an evening drinks reception for all TTN UK communities members and provide a show and tell opportunity on the first conference day on 15th October 2018. Further to the showcase at Things Conference Norwich, you’ll also get the opportunity to hear Head of Technology, IoT Lead, Alex Gluhak as a keynote speaker.
