Premier business development association for the Internet of Things moves beyond IoT to focus more broadly on technology innovations that will help shape the “metaverse” and physical world we live in
MONTCLAIR, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Internet of Things Consortium (IoTC) – the premier business development association for the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem – today announced its evolution to and the official launch of Emerging Tech Exchange. Recognizing that IoT has moved far beyond connected devices to include technologies leveraging augmented reality, gamification, robotics, deep learning and artificial intelligence – all of which are critical to both the development of the “metaverse” and the physical world we live in – the Emerging Tech Exchange will focus more broadly on the exciting and promising technology innovations that will help shape and define work and life moving forward.
“The Emerging Tech Exchange draws upon the success of the IoTC, where our members not only had a front-row seat to future tech at in-person and virtual events but also the chance to collaborate with likeminded visionaries and companies driving innovation forward in six key areas: connected homes, cities, transportation, retail, health/wellness and industrial applications,” says Emerging Tech Exchange leader Greg Kahn, who founded the IoTC in 2015. “While these areas are certainly still part of the conversation, Emerging Tech Exchange takes a big leap forward to embrace emerging tech areas where companies are making significant investments and developing strategic partnerships. The Emerging Tech Exchange will help its members forge the industry relationships and solid business models needed to ensure their innovations scale and generate notable returns.”
Kahn is a catalytic force in the technology, media and entertainment industries, renowned for connecting innovators with investors, growing brands and driving billions of dollars in transactional deals. Earning the trust and respect of some of the biggest companies in the world, including Comcast, Procter & Gamble, Nestle, ADT Security, Cox, Whirlpool, and GM to name a few, he has an unparalleled reputation for making the impossible possible.
Passionate about creating a world of meaningful connections, Kahn is launching Emerging Tech Exchange to bring decision makers together in unique settings, platforms and experiences that inspire authentic conversations, showcase new technologies and help drive concrete actions that will help emerging technology become mainstream quicker.
“Whether related to entertainment, finance, education, the environment, manufacturing, health or work, virtual and physical technologies are now ubiquitous, touching nearly every aspect of life,” adds Kahn. “I see this as a time for great optimism and enthusiasm, which is what Emerging Tech Exchange will reflect.”
Technology is evolving more rapidly than ever and there is no current platform that helps contextualize companies’ and consumers’ needs. Emerging Tech Exchange will provide both a home and a valued platform for established and new companies.
In the coming months, the Emerging Tech Exchange will announce its new advisory board as well as upcoming activities. To become a member and stayed tuned, visit: https://www.emergingtechexchange.com/
