IoT Forum on Retail

IoT Forum on Retail

The IoT Forum is focused on discovering innovation, exchanging knowledge, growing professional networks, and above all building partnerships across the entire IoT ecosystem. 

IoT Forum members meet monthly in Silicon Valley to discover new companies and technologies, meet partner prospects in person, review market opportunities across the wide spectrum of connected things, and deep dive into a specific segment with the help of buyers and experts. This month, we are focused on Innovation in Retail.


We’re already used to being bombarded with online advertisements, personalized discounts based on prior purchases either via email or at the self-checkout, and sleek single click online purchase options. Imagine that experience translating to a physical store.

Selections previewed online are highlighted on a store map on your mobile phone. Automated inventory control ensures what you are looking for is available. Skip the lines as sensors scan your purchases and charge via your mobile payment app. Loyalty programs ensure you get the best price, and the store gets your continued patronage. No returns necessary as you tried on those jeans, matched the color on that purse, ensured the sunglasses made you look cool!

Here’s what to expect as Retail meets the IoT:

  • Automated Checkout
  • Personalized Discounts
  • Beacons
  • Smart Shelves
  • In-store Layout Optimization
  • Robot Employees

Join the IoT Forum community of buyers, sellers, tech scouts and technology companies to review new technologies and discover startups solving problems in retail shopping, both online and in-store. IoT Forum meetings are short, packed interactive discussions with highly-focused networking and plenty of demos.
