The IoT Week 2015 happened from the 16th to the 18th June at Lisbon Congress Centre.
Portugal is well positioned in respect to the Internet-of-Things. Notably, the global Vodafone M2M middleware platform is being developed in Portugal (Lisbon) and also the Bosch M2M&IoT solutions are developed in Portugal (Aveiro).

And also, key cities like Porto and Lisbon are building their smart-city strategies based on IoT technologies and data.
