More than 800 bilateral interviews are expected to be scheduled over three days in this activity
Providers of IoT, artificial intelligence and blockchain solutions, technological centres, universities and startups, as well as industrial companies interested in implementing these disruptive technologies. All of them will have the chance to find international business, commercial and technological partners at the Brokerage Event to be held at IoTSWC (IoT Solutions World Congress) from 29th to 31st October. This networking activity plans to schedule 800 bilateral interviews over three days involving more than 350 companies from over 35 countries.
The Brokerage Event is organized within the framework of IoTSWC by the Enterprise Europe Network and ACCIÓ, the Catalan Government agency for business competitiveness. The firms that register on the platform will be able to schedule 20-minute B2B meetings, depending on the availability, interests and objectives of the participants, with companies from European countries, USA, Canada, China, India, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia, Israel and Turkey. These meetings will enable them to reach international partnership agreements for sales and licences, joint ventures, outsourcing, investment, technological transfer and R&D projects.
This activity, particularly highly rated by SMEs, leads to the active establishment of contacts, saving time and resources, expanding professional networks and promoting cross-border business relationships. Similarly, the participating companies will be able to gain visibility in the market by attending IoTSWC, a leading event on the innovations of the industrial internet of things and its convergence with other disruptive technologies that are driving the digitization of all kinds of sectors and businesses.
Last year, 95% of the participants declared that the IoTSWC Brokerage Event had exceeded their expectations and 85% regarded their meeting schedule as the right one, while 45% of the 700 interviews held were classified as leading to “potential collaboration” or a “confirmed agreement”.
This year the companies interested in taking part can sign up until 24th October via the Brokerage Event platform on the IoTSWC website, attaching a description of the products, services and technologies they are offering or looking for. From 25th September to 31st October the companies that have signed up will be able to select the business collaboration profiles that best suit their interests and request a meeting to set up the agendas for the interviews to be held at IoTSWC 2019.
Organized by Fira de Barcelona in partnership with the IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium), IoTSWC is an international flagship event in the field of innovations in the industrial internet of things and the only one that combines a trade exhibition, a congress, testbeds and high-level professional networking. In its next edition, it expects to bring together 400 exhibiting companies and more than 400 speakers from all over the world, as well as surpassing the figure of 16,000 attendees from 120 countries in 2018.
