The IoTMK Meetup is a place to connect things.

What gets connected?

  • Maybe it’s the next few objects of the billions that will supposedly be connected to the internet in the next few years.
  • Maybe it’s you, to suppliers or customers, to knowledge and to the opportunities that go along with this expansion.
  • Maybe it’s your thinking. We’re all working this out as we go along and hearing how other people are making sense, or not, of all this might be just the insight you need.

Our aim is to develop and promote MK’s involvement in IoT.

Come along to learn, challenge and maybe redefine what IoT means.
