IoT World Virtual Announcement

As the world has continued to adapt over the past few months, we have been continuously reviewing the best ways to serve the IoT community.  
We believe the need for the community to connect, inform and innovate is stronger than ever and we are committed to providing you this platform.  
With the prospect of physical gatherings unlikely in the coming months, we are excited to announce the launch of IoT World Virtual, a two-day virtual experience to be held August 11-12, 2020 that will allow our entire global community to participate.  

Meanwhile, we are rescheduling our in-person version of Startup Elevate which was to be held during  IoT World 2020 to 2021 , taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center, April 26-29, 2021.  

IoT World Virtual will deliver the same, high-quality content including world renowned keynotes, conference tracks, trainings, workshops, roundtables and working groups that you were looking forward to at this year’s in-person event. We are also excited for the opportunity to provide new innovative networking opportunities through data driven networking engagements across various new virtual formats.  

For sponsors, exhibitors, speaker and registered attendees for the in-person August event, we’ve been in touch via email to share more information about how to join the IoT World Virtual Event.
We believe in the power of gathering our community to share, inspire, and strengthen our industry, and are committed to continue this through our media brand, IoT World Today, and now through our IoT World Series of virtual events, too.  

Stay tuned for more information about IoT World Virtual (August 11-12, 2020) very soon.
