London (10 May 2021): Novotech, a distributor of IoT technology solutions, has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the world’s largest community of IoT users with 25,000 rank-and-file members. The company expects to help accelerate the adoption of IoT technology by using the IMC as a platform for thought leadership, and also to grow its supply network of OEMs. For its part, the IMC has become a standard for online IoT events and has recently launched an initiative to gather new data from its membership that it hopes will advise on how best to grow the industry.

“The Novotech team has a great deal of experience in Industrial IoT, M2M communication across a wide range of markets. We are eager to collaborate with other leaders in this space through the various facilities that the IMC has to offer.” says Richard Hobbs, Novotech’s President who will represent the company on the IMC Board of Governors.

The IMC’s online conferences routinely draw several hundred live attendees, and over 60% of them will consistently identify as buyers of IoT solutions – a rarity among IoT trade events. The group is also the exclusive IoT Infrastructure partner for the massive Consumer Electronics Show, where it organizes a large IoT pavilion, conferences and press events, and it is currently building a similar dynamic with Hannover Messe, the world’s largest manufacturing event. “We know of no other group that gathers IoT buyers at the same kind of scale,” says Hobbs.

“We welcome Novotech to the IMC board as a company with the kind of hands-on experience that will help us to use the data we collect about our Adopter Membership to spread IoT best practices,” says Kim Bybjerg, VP of European Business Operations at Tata Communications and the IMC Chairman, ”Our membership is a unique asset that facilitates outreach for our board companies.”
