Keith Kreisher, IMC Executive Director, provides a three-minute introduction to the IMC, its mission, and its history.

Our Mission

The IMC is the largest and fastest-growing trade organisation in the IoT/M2M sector, with over 25,000 OEMs, enterprise users, and apps developers as members, and an average of 300 new members joining weekly. The IMC brings a new approach – it will increase deployments of IoT/M2M solutions by proving the business case of the technology to those that would adopter it. It will stand for connectivity as its own global industry, and will not see IoT/M2M technology through the narrow lens of technical standards or a single vertical industry. The IMC will support industry efforts to increase deployment volumes by offering members services that connect Solutions Providers with Adopters of IoT/M2M technology and meeting their evolving needs.


Promote powerful use-cases for IoT/M2M technology in industries like automotive, manufacturing, energy, healthcare, public infrastructure, retail, and more – making the benefits of connectivity highly visible to Adopters.


Learn more about the demographics and needs of Adopters that deploy connectivity – in functions as diverse as operations, IT, and product design – and in doing so, how best to address those needs.

Thought Leadership

Provide platforms for IMC Sustaining Members to set the group agenda, communicate that agenda to a broad audience, create better channel relationships, and rightfully claim a position of industry leadership.


Communicate consensus views about important issues, such as privacy and security in the IoT/M2M sector, with governments and other industry groups as those views pertain to regulations and standards.

Please note: the IMC is registered in the United Kingdom as the International M2M Council (a company limited by guarantee; Company Registration Number: 8447686 England & Wales), and is currently doing business as the IoT M2M Council.
