IoT Pavilion at CES to Show Explosive Growth Next Year
Las Vegas (22 January 2020): The IoT Infrastructure Pavilion @ CES, organized by the IoT M2M Council trade group, will increase by well over 65% for the 2021 event. The IMC pavilion will also move into the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center to accommodate the pavilion's growth - averaging close to 50% for the last three years - and demand for larger booths. CES draws tens of thousands of OEMs and product design professionals from sectors like automotive, smart home, and wearables, and almost half of the pavilion's available exhibition space for the 2021 event has already been sold.
"Our deepening relationship with the Consumer Technology Association has led us to develop a full set of IoT programming for CES. This year, we organized press and networking events, in addition to our full conference agenda and, of course, the pavilion," says newly elected IMC Chairman Sara Brown, who is also VP of Marketing for IoT hardware provider MultiTech, a company that also exhibits at the show, "Our plan is to make CES one of the most important IoT events in the world and we can say with confidence that we are well on our way."
The IMC will also organize a similar pavilion/conference program for Hannover Messe, the worlds largest manufacturing event. "We've been woven into the fabric of CES, and we hope to do the same in Hannover. IoT solutions providers used to walk these shows and schedule meetings off-site. That's no longer good enough. We're not just meeting other vendors at CES - we've met potential customers that we did not know and that did not know us," says Brown
The IMC's IoT Infrastructure Pavilion will share LVCC North with CES's demonstration areas for Smart Cities, Enterprise, and Health & Wellness, and the move places it directly adjacent to areas for AI/Robotics in LVCC South and automotive tech in the to-be-completed LVCC West. The pavilion will also offer frontage on two main aisles and traffic from a new registration area at LVCC North.
