Public Expo

PUBLIC EXPO – IoT Week 2019 in Aarhus, 18-20 June

For the first time ever the IoT Week in Aarhus, Denmark will include an open public expo area
where leaders from the world of business, technology and science share their ideas of future technology and its impact on our lives. The Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are already playing an important role in our everyday life and will be even more significant in the future. The question is, how the future of IoT will look like?

Public Expo
Come and join the free Public Expo at IoT Week, a unique event, full of co-creation and human-centric technology-based ideas and discussions. People not only create data, but hugely profit from the information gathered from them. Experience how it feels to live in the smart community of the future where homes and streets along with people generate a constant flow of data. Data, processed through transaction management, considering privacy and ethics, monitoring shared economies, air and climate quality, public life and space quality, co-creating better homes and cities to live in and through data interoperability, making it possible to connect cities and to create a greater community within the regions.

The Public Expo will explore topics such as international cooperation, future manufacturing and industry, smart living & e-health, smart cities & communities, artificial intelligence & smart data, IoT market 6 business models, IoT emerging technologies, IoT security & data protection, 5G & IoT network, smart farming and IoT art & society, embracing the IoT lifestyle, delivering a compact package of exiting demonstrations and interactive sessions.

The Public Expo is free and open for visitors and passers-by, taking place, next to the main venue of IoT Week (Musikhuset & ARoS), in Ridehuset, Byparken, BORA BORA and the surrounding areas. The masterplan of the concept of the public expo is designed in cooperation with Aarhus Kommune, Aarhus University, Gehl Architects, Rambøll and it-forum, focusing on the human-centric experience. The ambition is to present Internet of Things in a very concrete and interactive way, unfolding the juxtaposition of analogue and digital. Partners and exhibitors participate by contributing to the envisioned experience through co-creation and integrating real-life visions, showcasing what state-of-art products are already capable of today rather that talking about what might happen in the future.

Join the event together with leading professionals such as LEGO, Telia, Aarhus BSS, Nordic IoT Centre, EU’s IoT Large-Scale Pilots (LSP) Programme, IBM and many more.

We look very much forward to seeing you to an inspiring and productive experience. If you have questions, please contact the local host team at it-forum at
