Sharing his thoughts on the upcoming Congress, Shekhar Sanyal, Director and Country Head of the IET, said, “We’ve come a long way in the last 3 years, from unifying the fragmented IoT Ecosystem in India to unraveling business outcomes, to actually demonstrating them. With this edition, we hope to showcase and discuss the application of IoT to advance business outcomes. We are excited about this edition as it comes full circle from understanding to now applying IoT in bigger and better ways.”

Rishi Bhatnagar, Chairman, IET IoT Panel and IoT India Congress, and President, Aeris Communications (India) said, “Industrial IoT has been growing at a rapid rate in India. The IAMAI (The Internet and Mobile Association of India) and Deloitte Industrial IoT predict that IoT will be a $12 billion opportunity in India. Serving as a platform for industry experts, policymakers and startups to come together, the last three editions of the IoT India Congress provided the opportunity to discuss future business outcomes. With this edition, we hope to see more industry leaders coming together to discuss the exponential applications of IoT. We look forward to seeing great participation from IoT enthusiasts from across the country.”
