Summer is rapidly approaching which means it’s time to get ready for yet another Spring Season Final for Swedish IoT. It is a dear tradition since 2012 that the makers and shakers of Swedish IoT gather to update each other on the latest development in different industries, applications and technologies by sharing real-life cases from the trenches, and to enjoy touching base with friends in our rapidly growing ecosystem. The formats for our rendez-vous has varied over time mainly depending on the resources available to plan and run the event. Like last year SMSE will host a half-day event at THINGS in Stockholm followed back-to-back by burgers and beer into the night. It is an invitation only event and we are limited to 60 seats. 

The companies presenting insights and cases include: 1NCE, Centigo, CombiQ, Crosser, Ekkono, Gimic, H&D Wireless, Imagimob, IoT Sweden, Mavenoid, MTEK, Northstream, Sigma Connectivity and Springworks

The event is organised by the alliance for Swedish IoT companies, SMSE, a self-funded activity since 2011 established to educate the market, promote Sweden as a good place to look for IoT experience and solutions and to help the members find partners, customers and investors primarily abroad. Today we have some 65 members and 20+ partners and we have been able to create a little interest abroad. THINGS is partner to SMSE and co-organise the IoT Summit. 

Seats will be allocated to SMSE companies, members and prospects of THINGS Enterprise Circle, industry representatives and presenters. All presentations are in English. 

The event is rapidly filling up so make sure to sign up right away if you want to enjoy our IoT Summit with people from companies like Endian, 1NCE, Mtek, Crosser, Ekkono, Attentec, Husqvarna, Scania, Guixer & Partners, Northstream, Infracontrol, GSMA, 3, NCC, Flex, WSI, IIOX, Nokia, ASSA ABLOY, Gimic, CombiQ, Sigma Connectivity, Springworks, EQUINIX, FLIR Systems, Berotec, Citi, Vattenfall, Mavenoid, Imagimob, Centigo, H&D Wireless, ABB, Vodafone, Gemit, Cyan Connode, Combient, Horda Group, IoT Sweden, Business Sweden, Acando, SAP, Telia Company, Nordic Guarantee, EFESO, Herenco Invest, Ericsson, Keolis, Verizon, GE Healthcare and Kista Science City.

All you need to know

This startup style event is organised by the alliance for Swedish IoT companies, SMSE, in collaboration with THINGS and it takes place at THINGS June 20. 

Here is how it will work this year: Our program will include a couple of 15 minutes Insight presentations and some 10 x 10 minutes case presentations on our favourite format "problem-solution-result”. We will try to cover the hottest markets including Smart Factories, Smart Cities and Mobility and from a technology point of view we’ll try to cover Machine Learning, LPWAN, 5G, Robotics and smart usage of energy. We will open the doors at noon for registration and business mingle, the presentations will start 13:00 and around 5:30 we will close to conference and focus on the beers and burgers. We will have space available for some “tables” for companies to gather the attendees around, and we will have space for some roll-ups as well. 

Prices (ex VAT): Tickets 2.000 Sek, Tables 2.000 Sek, Roll-ups 1.000 Sek, Insight speeches 5.000 Sek. Proposals for sponsorship of the event are always welcome so please keep them coming!  SMSE companies get 50% on all prices.

I am sure the 7:th Spring Season Final for Swedish IoT will be yet another fantastic event and I'm really looking forward to  it!
