The Internet of Things Consortium (IoTC), the premier business development association for the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, today launches its inaugural IoTC NEXT: The Connected Future Summit, the first IoT event of its kind that, above all, seeks to answer the crucial question, How can we create a connected and ethical future? Technology leaders, brand executives, investors, entrepreneurs and top media committed to the development, integration and implementation of connected technology have come together at TheTimesCenter in New York to build impactful partnerships, share real world opportunities and spur creativity. Led by IoTC President and CEO Greg Kahn?who Inc. and others have named as a principal influencer driving IoT forward?IoTC NEXT features a prestigious lineup of presenters focusing on trends, challenges and ideas to advance innovation, ethical standards and inspiration in the connected home, retail, wearables, smart cities and mobility verticals. The complete list includes:

"We are thrilled to bring such an outstanding group of people together who share a common goal and a bold vision to realize the tremendous potential of IoT," says Kahn, who founded the IoTC in 2016. "Over the past three years, we have united the most powerful and influential executives at a succession of meetings and VIP events where consortium members form strategic partnerships, share knowledge and best practices to help educate consumers and the broader business community. IoTC NEXT will take this movement to a higher level. In addition to tackling industry roadblocks for IoT products and services to cross the chasm of early adoption to mass market, it is our goal that everyone here today walks away feeling inspired, energized and part of an IoT community with a real soul and a collaborative, inclusive culture. I'd like to acknowledge lunch sponsor Arm and all our media partners for their generous support."

The highly curated program includes an opening address by McKinsey & Company's Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, IoT, Brett May, who provides insight into the current state of IoT. The day-long summit also includes a presentation by ARM entitled "Leveraging IoT to Drive Digital Transformation." IoTC NEXT also features the first-ever ICON Awards, which are being presented to the following four U.S. Senators whose bipartisan efforts have resulted in the passage of the Developing and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act: Senator Deb Fischer (R-Nebraska); Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii); Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colo.); and Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

"We are fortunate to have in attendance some of the world's most innovative minds and successful business leaders across technology, consumer, enterprise and government," Kahn adds. "By 2025, it is estimated that there will be more than 41 billion IoT devices, with everything from drones to pacemakers to office buildings getting smarter. To prepare for and map out a future of connectivity that offers more benefits and less vulnerability, IoTC NEXT is serving as a catalyst to help us create an ecosystem of individuals who will work together to achieve long-term success and impact. While this is a process that takes time, resources and significant investment, the benefits to cities, businesses and consumers are invaluable."
