18.45 IoT at your service!

Koen Matthijs, CEO MCS Group

In this session, we will look from a different, pragmatic and tangible way what we can get out of IoT inside a building. It is about how you as a CIO, facility manager, real estate manager can become smart(er) based on information coming from sensors and about how actionable you can make that data. You will never think about your buildings the same again…

19.30 Strategic use of IoT in Manufacturing

Benoit Lambot, Head of IoT Global expansion, AT&T

In this session, we will show the potential of drones in a manufacturing environment. This will be positioned in a wider context of improving the visibility, efficiency and operations inside a smart factory. It is all about integration of IoT technology with a strategic approach to sustainability, cost reduction, people well-being and economic development. We conclude by envisioning the future potential of IoT.
