The event’s mission is to:

  • Assess the business cases for IoT / Industry 4.0
  • Identify added value profitable opportunities across the supply chain
  • Cover the full scope of IoT systems from the market leaders
  • Learn about the new disruptive technologies enabling IoT.

Event Highlights

  • 200+ Exhibitors expected
  • End-user focused needs and experiences aired
  • 200+ Presentations
  • Latest technologies Developments and roadmaps
  • 3000+ Attendees Demonstrations Samples.

Navigating IoT through the hype

The Internet of Things will connect existing systems and then augment those by connecting more things, thanks to wireless sensor networks and other technologies. Things on the ‘edge’ form mesh networks and can make their own automated decisions.

But where and how, in the scale of hype to reality, can the Internet of Things profit suppliers and users today? What are the pragmatic steps needed to enable the Internet of Things and widespread deployment of wireless sensor networks that are feasible and based on an ROI and not the hope someone else will pay for this? Who is buying IoT in the short term? Find the answers at this event in Berlin.

Demonstration street

The IDTechEx Show! exhibition will feature “Demonstration Street”, a large area dedicated to showing a full range of wireless products and prototypes, helping to create The Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything. It will include devices incorporating energy harvesting, sensor, printed electronics and wearable technologies; including wireless power, wireless charging, wireless sensors and much more.

Visitors to Demonstration Street will have the opportunity to examine prototypes, and commercial products. We invite any company with suitable products to apply for a free space in this area which can be used to demonstrate your product.

Qualifying companies will be able to place a brief description of the product next to it, along with business cards and a plaque bearing the company logo. Companies exhibiting at the event will also have signage next to their products referring people to their stands.

Who can apply?

Applicants for Demonstration Street must already be registered for the event; as either an attendee, exhibitor, or speaker. Applicants should have a working prototype or commercial product to show that demonstrates new advances in any of the related event topics of: 3D printing, energy harvesting, energy storage, electric vehicles, graphene, IoT, printed electronics, sensors, or wearable technology. *

What’s included?

Demonstration Street is an open 900 sq ft booth on the exhibition floor. Successful applicants will be given exhibit space and furniture in Demonstration Street to display their product FREE of charge (products are shown either freestanding, placed in a glass fronted showcase cabinet, or on a podium). Power is also supplied if required. A small sign will be placed with each product showing the company name, product description and contact details; the sign will be produced by IDTechEx Show Management. Successful applicants will also be listed as an exhibitor on the event website and in the event show guide (exhibitor listing includes a 50 company profile, logo, url).

Why will this benefit your company?

IDTechEx events are strongly marketed to many end user verticals. Attendees include brand managers and buyers who want to see working products rather than the components in the value chain. Demonstration Street aims to facilitate this by showcasing to potential customers your working products. In addition, this part of the exhibition will receive large press coverage from media beyond the electronics and manufacturing sectors.


These 23 expert-led masterclasses will ensure that you get the most from the conference and exhibition by arming you with the latest progress and perspective on the Internet of Things and many other topics, saving you extensive time in mapping the industry yourself.

The best way to learn the complete picture with detailed technology and market intelligence:

  • Complete mapping of technologies and markets
  • Covering key players, progress, innovations, case studies and forecasts
  • Masterclass attendees also have the opportunity to attend the Company Tours.
