IoT Week 2021

30/08/2021 - 03/09/2021

After careful consideration, the General Assembly of the IoT Forum have decided, that due to the ongoing travel restrictions and further spread of new COVID-19 variants, the IoT Week 2021 will be moved to a fully virtual event. 


The virtual event will be held on the same dates (August 31 to September 3, 2021) and the participation will be free of charge. The format and scope of the IoT Virtual Week and its programme will be slightly adjusted to fit the new online format. The full IoT Virtual Week programme will become available in the next few weeks. Please keep an eye on the IoT Week websitefor further updates. 


Although this year we still won’t be able to meet face to face with our industry colleagues at the IoT Week, we are delighted to announce, that it has been confirmed by the IoT Forum Board, the next physical edition of IoT Week will take place in Dublin from 20 to 23 June 2022. 


Join us online this August at the IoT Week virtual event and save the dates to meet us in Dublin in 2022! 


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to our continuing partnership.   


We are in the process of reviewing the IoT Week virtual format and will be in contact with you soon with further information. 



IoT Week 2021 will welcome the industry leaders, leading researchers, and public service representatives not only from Europe but from around the world to share their views on how the technology can serve society better and identify what are the technological and societal challenges today.
