In November 2019, the Growing Data Foundation hosted The Things Conference Asia Pacific on Tour. This Conference aimed to provide a showcase of the world’s largest, open Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem – The Things Network.

It facilitated a rare opportunity for conference delegates to meet with, and learn from industry leaders, develop their IoT knowledge and skills, and to network with key players in the market who were already leveraging the power of this exciting technology to contribute to the economic, environmental and social development of their organisations and communities.

The Conference was attended by over 170 people who heard a keynote address from Johan Stokking, CTO, The Things Network Netherlands and participated in workshops and panel discussions across three streams – Technical, Smart Cities and Education.

Unfortunately the face-to-face Conference planned for 2020 had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however it will return when possible – hopefully in 2022.
