The event will also be audiocast (live and archived) for media unable to attend in person.

The event aims to facilitate the global expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) through a better understanding of trends, including standardization needs. Results will inform the drafting of the future technical standards (ITU-T Recommendations) that will be fundamental to the smooth operation of networks potentially supporting billions of interconnected devices.

The event will incorporate exhibits from industry, government, research institutes and academia. STMicroelectronics will showcase its Smart Home concept, and EPFL its OpenIOT project. Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications (NICT) will display its medical body area network, and there will be an exhibit from Yokosuka Telecom Research Park (YRP).
