The exhibition area will feature more than 400 leading companies in the field of transformative solutions such as ABB, Digicet, Emnify, Faircom, KNX, IoT squared, ST Microelectronics and Txone. The IOTSWC offer is completed with a specific area for the semiconductor sector, a Testbed Zone, a Startup Pavilion, the Women and Diversity in Industry and the Garden space, the networking environment of the show.

The event has been designed based on sustainability and circularity criteria, using recycled and reusable materials.

According to data from Statista, the Internet of Things is on a steady upward trend, with 16.7 billion connected devices worldwide in 2023 and 19.2 billion expected in 2024.
