ThingsCon is Europe’s leading conference about the future of hardware, connected devices and Internet of Things (IoT). Started in Berlin it is growing into a global community of like-minded practitioners around Internet of Things and new hardware. ThingsCon fosters the creation of a human-centric & responsible IoT. To this end it provides practitioners with an open environment for reflection & collaborative action.
ThingsCon Amsterdam started with a one day conference on 7 November 2014, inspired by the successful format of that year’s first Berlin edition. In 2015 we grew into a conference with about 250 attendees and we felt that we needed to keep growing the Dutch community by also organising smaller focused events; the Salons. In 2016 we organised five Salons and ended the year again with the 3rd edition of the Thingscon Amsterdam conference, with an international line-up of top notch speakers and about 25 sessions and 50 speakers on different aspects of making a meaningful impact through product and service design of connected products, with around 330 attendees.
ThingsCon Amsterdam 2016 took place on 1 & 2 December at the Volkshotel in Amsterdam. Find a report on the talks and sessions on the reporting page.
We will continue to organise the Salons and events in 2017. Find all information on this website.
