The inaugural Smart Industry Conference & Expo is scheduled to take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel on October 5-7, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. The first of its kind, Smart Industry will offer a three-day event that will focus on the change in processes and technologies, as the ‘Internet of Things’ continues to penetrate the industrial space.

“The emerging ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ (IIoT) combines Big Data analytics with supply-chain and factory-floor sensors and monitoring tools, opening the door to greater efficiency, responsiveness and profitability for manufacturers and other industrial companies. As the IIoT matures, it will trickle into more industrial organizations, driving transformation comparable to what the commercial Internet did," according to Keith Larson, Vice President, Content at Putman Media.

“The Smart Industry Conference & Expo will be the best opportunity for executives from the most innovative companies to come together to network with peers, view demos of evolving technologies that bring the Internet further into the industrial sector than ever before, and contribute to the evolving standards currently under development for the Industrial Internet,” according to Terry Wiese, Vice President, Events at Putman Media.

"The Industrial Internet Consortium is proud to be working with Putman Media to provide content for attendees to learn the latest information and technologies about putting the Industrial Internet of Things to work in their organizations," says William Hoffman, President, Industrial Internet Consortium.
