2016 IoT Planet Trade Show – A unique European IoT event


Discover  the  second edition of the  IoT Planet trade show,  a unique high-tech event in Europe.  The trade show  will be  held  from  October 25th  to 27th,  2016  at  Alpexpo  in Grenoble  France. Following  the  success of the  first  edition in October 2015,  this  second edition highlights Grenoble’s position as a leader of global  innovation. The event will be held alongside the  Semicon Europa  trade show,  making it a unique opportunity in Europe  to discover the  electronics industry’s entire  value chain.


IoT Planet combines the advantages of a major exhibition with smaller  spaces dedicated to startups, forums, debates, IoT services, partner events and numerous networking opportunities. The two trade  shows will house more than  700 stands in an exhibition space that  covers 15,000  m2. More than  7,000 visitors  are expected. In addition, this year IoT Planet  will be opened to high-tech enthusiasts.

Geared  towards industry  professionals as  well as  the  general  public, the  trade  show’s forums will be held in the  Agora located in the center of the exhibition space. Round table discussions will bring together IoT company leaders to analyze the long-term viability and  impact of IoT. Various forums will discuss fields such  as  smart living, smart industries, data security, education, recruitment and management.

Partner tribunes will allow companies to promote their  IoT applications and  services in front  of the  general  public or a specifically  targeted audience. By planning  corporate events to be integrated in the  IoT Planet  Trade  Show, partner companies will take advantage of the event’s international audience.

New developments for the 2016  IoT Planet Trade Show

This year’s trade  show  will include  a hackathon and  a space dedicated to crash-testing innovations. In partnership with Grenoble Ecole de Management, participating companies will be able to test  their innovations with a panel of users.

“Meeting consumer  expectations  means  going beyond the technological innovation of a connected  object. You have to test  a variety of factors such as pricing, ethics, design, maintenance and user experience. Before considering large-scale production, it’s essential to confirm an innovation’s added value thanks to feedback from a consumer panel.” explains Sylvie Blanco, a professor and director  of collaborative research at Grenoble Ecole de Management.

To round out this year’s novelties, the IoT Planet  Trade Show will also become a connected event. A new B2B application will facilitate  networking and increase business opportunities during the trade  show. Entrance to the trade  show is free for professionals and high-tech enthusiasts! For more information, visit IoT Planet
