IoT World 2021 will take place November 2-4, 2021 and will co-locate with AI Summit Silicon Valley, to showcase the next wave of secure connected environments through the intelligence of things.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Informa Tech has taken pride in taking early and decisive action to ensure the safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff whilst the situation around the hosting of in-person events has evolved rapidly.

As the timeline for the safe return of large-scale events becomes clearer, for this same reason, we have made the decision to move IoT World 2021, traditionally held in April, to now be held November 2-4, 2021, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Not only are we looking forward to being back in person for IoT World 2021, but after the huge success in attracting international attendees from 94 countries to IoT World Virtual in August 2020, the 2021 event will now also leverage the capabilities of reaching a global audience by being a hybrid event. We will now be able to connect the in-person North American audience, to the online global audience at IoT World, for the very first time. As a result, the previous IoT World Europe, IoT World Asia, IoT World China and IoT World Africa will now be held virtually, during IoT World, creating a global festival of IoT innovation.

For exhibitors and sponsors with credits from 2020, your sales representative will reach out to you with more information to automatically roll your credits to the November 2021 IoT World, and help you secure your booth space. Additionally, you will have the opportunity before IoT World to be involved with Embedded IoT World and the IoT at the Edge Digital Symposium virtual events, and media advertising and/or marketing services opportunities with IoT World Today.

Conference attendees who paid to attend the IoT World live event in 2020 will automatically have access to attend the fall in-person event with a pass of equal value. *

The 8th annual IoT World will now also co-locate with the 6th annual AI Summit Silicon Valley, also organized by Informa Tech. Bringing these two-industry leading conference and exhibition programs together will ensure the entire IoT ecosystem from components & devices through to AI applications is present within the worlds largest IoT and AI expo.

This will also ensure that enterprise adopters can reduce time out of the office by attending one scaled industry event covering two of the most important enterprise technology developments enterprise leaders face in progressing their digital transformation.

IoT World 2021 will focus on four core themes, all critical in the development of the market as we adapt to our new world:

Developments in the IoT ecosystem to progress end-to-end IoT solutions

Intersecting IoT with 5G, Edge and AI to progress digital transformation

The applications of IIoT for industrial enterprise to adapt and win in the new normal

Securing the IoT, now

The combined event will also feature Elevating Founders USA, delivered in partnership between Informa Tech and Founders Forum. This Startup Program will feature business ready IoT and AI startups, alongside the investor community to help unlock growth in the next disruptors of the market.
