After the previous successful Mobile Breakfast Series celebrated in Seattle, London is the next stop for the Series again.
Mobile Breakfast Series are now in their sixth year. Initially held in Seattle, the Series has expanded to meet its global vocation and in the past three years has been held in turns in Seattle, Atlanta and London. The Mobile Breakfast Series are an influential program of events where panels of experts deal with the hottest topics in the industry.

In this European follow up of the event held in March in Seattle on the same topic, the panel will delve on how IoT is further pushing mobile technology into its golden age.
One of the topics that is likely to be discussed are how the results are matching up with the expectations. The impact of how the IoT will reshape the world, as we know it has been forecasted in 50 billion connected devices by 2020 and an impact of $ 10-15 trillion on the GDP over the next 20 years.
It is also likely that M2M technology will receive a great deal of attention, as it is one of the main forces spurring the IoT.
There is a wealth of topics to tap into: the hype around wearables and how they are meeting expectations, smart cities, connected industry, M2M in Retail, Connected Cars, Managed Fleets, Security, etc.
