A conference about the future of hardware, connected devices and Internet of Things

ThingsCon is Europe’s leading conference about the future of hardware, connected devices and Internet of Things (IoT), and foster the creation of human-centric & responsible IoT. After the 2015 edition we had the idea to not wait until the next year, but to have additional get-togethers for our ‘new-things-enthusiasts’. This inspired us to organise Salons on different topics related to tech and IoT.

We are happy to see that the ethics in design and tech is becoming more important in the general discourse. At the same time, new developments like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) makes it even more intransparent how technology will influence the behavior of the things we use. IoT as a separate concept is becoming less important, but the characteristics of connected products and physical data nodes are the new normal. We especially see a topic for us to empower designers and makers of new things.

The next event is the conference. We are organising the 4th Dutch edition of the conference on November 30th & December 1st 2017, at the Volkshotel. We value ThingsCon as a platform for the community of designers and makers and, even more than before, we like to offer the chance to apply for a talk or session. Just like the 2016 edition of the conference, we will focus on the right mix between inspiration and in-depth sessions.

The urge to make the best things will be translated into a program that caters different needs from inspiration to hands-on tools. If you want to support the conference, you can Check the possibilities and let us know. You can get a feeling of the conference by looking at the Reporting 2016 page, where we have gathered the reports and the agenda.
