Check out our monthly Salons

After a very successful edition of Thingscon Amsterdam last December, we, the organising team, had the idea not to wait until December 2016 to have another get-together with our ‘new things-enthusiasts’ (yes, we will organise Thingscon Amsterdam again this year). Also we heard a lot of attendees share the pity of only be able to do one of the workshops. That inspired us to plan the Thingscon Salons!

The Thingscon Salon is a monthly meetup organised by the Thingscon Amsterdam team in collaboration with different partners. The fist Salon took place in Amsterdam on April 1. The second in Rotterdam on May 13. The third again in Amsterdam. The fourth Salon in Eindhoven on smart society, organised together with VPRO Medialab.
The Fifth Salon will take place in October and have the theme The Internet of Toys.
Check for more information and RSVP: Salons.

We hope to see many of you at this new event!

ThingsCon Amsterdam; two days in 2016!

We can also announce that our next ThingsCon Amsterdam conference will take place in December again and we do a two day edition this year! We will share more news soon, but you can already register here.

Thingscon is a conference about the future of the hardware business, with a special focus on the Internet of Things and the design of new products and services that combine software and hardware. ThingsCon 2015 took place on December 4th at the Volkshotel in Amsterdam. Watch the aftermovie:

One day on design and making of the new products

Thingscon started as a Berlin based event that has already had two successful editions. The Berlin event is two days, and has an international audience. Thingscon Amsterdam is organised independently, but can draw on the international network of speakers.

ThingsCon Amsterdam is organised by (Iskander Smit), The Incredible Machine (Marcel Schouwenaar) and Monique van Dusseldorp, in close cooperation with Thingscon Berlin.
Co-organising and supported by CLICKNL, Amsterdam Creative Industries Network and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences School of Digital Media and Creative Industries.
Information on location and more speakers will be announced later. Follow us here or at @ThingsConAMS.


We like to build the Thingscon community further.
