Pres release

June 17th, 2014. M2M Innovation World Congress has unveiled the preliminary agenda of its conference.  Along 17 thematic sessions, already 50 eminent speakers are scheduled to present the most innovative M2M implementations from traditional M2M markets to emerging ones: Smart Grids, Smart Cities, Retail, Smart Home, Connected Cars, Consumer electronics.

The speakers will also deliver high level insights to rethink M2M ecosystems, business models, Big Data, platforms, connectivity and security.

This year more than ever, the full M2M value chain stakeholders rally to move away from a technology-driven approach and to put the business and user needs at the centre.

Expecting to welcome 300 delegates, the second edition of M2M Innovation World Congress aims to give its participants new inspirations to innovate and setup business while meeting prominent figures both from M2M industry and verticals.

Three first content highlights

Moving to the Internet of Things (and Everything): beyond the buzz words, several sessions will address the necessary shift toward a more integrated approach and sophisticated applications to face the explosion of data sources.

How to move from M2M approach to more integrated IoT services? How to optimize (big) data intelligence? How to overcome a fragmented market? IoT appears as a key innovation driver.

Full-day focus on ‘Connected Life’ – the proximity and M2M solutions are merging in numbers of applications.

A special day on September 24th will gather the organisations at the forefront of this revolution that finally arrives through Connected Cars, Smart Homes, Intelligent Transport Systems, Wearables, Smart Cities, Retail, etc. This full-day session will be held jointly with NFC World Congress.


The announced billion ‘things’ connected to the Internet are all potentially vulnerable to attacks, hacks and malware due to design and embedded systems software issues.

A half-day session held jointly with Chip-to-Cloud Security Forum will review the latest advances of security for large scale secure deployment and end-to-end communications involved in M2M/IoT services.
