IoT Forum Launch

IoT Forum Launch

Founding members and invited guests from companies at the cutting edge of IoT met at Amazon's offices for a networking lunch to discuss Growing the IoT Ecosystem, how Silicon Valley can play a supporting role, and to launch the IoT Forum.


The IoT Forum is focused on discovering innovation, exchanging knowledge, growing professional networks, and above all building partnerships across the entire IoT ecosystem. Buyers, sellers, and technology companies from around the world convene in Silicon Valley each month to meet startups, see demos, review new products, listen to case studies, and build relationships - in highly efficient 1/2 day meetings.


  • Speakers: IoT Forum reviews speaker applications for this and future meetings on a rolling basis. We encourage new companies and products to submit an application
  • Demo Tables: Innovative products and services can set up a Demo Table during the meeting to use during the 3 networking breaks. Up to 5 Demo Tables may be available to the public for $500 in online registration first-come, first-served.
  • Attending: Registration is included in IoT Forum membership. Non-members may register for the case study and lunch session for $200. Companies active in the IoT innovation ecosystem and considering IoT Forum membership, may request a space-available guest pass by registering below.
  • Sponsor: For the cost of coffee or lunch for 50 people, sponsors promote their technology and their brand. Email us for details.
