*This is a programme draft. The programme is subject to change and will be updated continuously up to the conference.

** The conference will be held in English.

The Things Network is the largest free-to-use network for the Internet of Things (IoT) that uses LoRaWAN®, the “global de facto LPWAN standard” for IoT. It is estimated that 75 % of the mass IoT market is in the low power, long life battery, small data messages, deep penetration in building, and easy ramp up, as well as connections in rural areas and over water.

At the conference, you will have the opportunity to find out all about this technology, its fit into the IoT ecosystem, pros, cons, and alternatives (like NB-IoT and CAT M1), and learn how to choose the best technology for a particular application.

Let's build this thing together!
