According to SMARTWEEK 2014 Co-Founder Helen Kontozopoulos “we found that Toronto was the perfect place to showcase the emerging IoT sector. Toronto is a hub for IoT innovation, whether it be startups working with wearables or established players working with data”. According to co-founder Mario Grech, “We have all seen how drastically the Internet has changed the human experience in the last ten years alone; the ‘Internet of Things’ or ‘Internet of Everything’ ups the ante once again for the next decade.”

In addition, SMARTWEEK 2014’s global partners will host a number of IoT events during October, including an IoT workshop co-hosted by The Knowledge Transfer Network with a keynote from ARM in London, UK.
