KPMG IoT Innovation Expo Series 2018 - Smart Power, Water and Utilities

The Internet of Things (IoT) landscape continues to evolve at pace, unlocking opportunities to transform operational efficiency, automate processes, improve customer experience and deliver economic outcomes across multiple domains including ‘smart’ power, water and utilities.

The emerging IoT technology ecosystem is both complex and fast-moving. Understanding the players and the relevant offerings in the market can prove challenging.

To help de-mystify this challenge, on Wednesday, 8th August 2018, KPMG’s Innovation Lab in Sydney will be transformed into an IoT expo with a focus on Smart Power, Water and Utilities.

The expo will showcase a range of IoT innovations from emerging and established technology vendors, providing the opportunity to engage with the ecosystem and go ‘hands-on’ to see real-life solutions in action.

Additionally, the event will include an opening Ministerial Keynote by The Hon. Don Harwin MLC, NSW Minister for Resources, Minister for Energy and Utilities, Minister for the Arts, and Vice-President of the Executive Council, followed by a number of keynote presentations from distinguished industry leaders sharing their experience and insights of the innovation they are seeing in IoT.

Overall, our aim for the event is to accelerate the adoption of IoT by connecting the demand and supply ecosystem together to help shape new opportunities, increase confidence and propel the market – and in doing so help you to identify strategic opportunities to solve your smart power, water and utilities challenges.

Who will benefit from attending this event

Smart Utilities Managers / Coordinators, Chief Information Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Technology Officers, Chief Digital Officers, Emerging Technology Managers / Directors and Innovation Managers / Directors from the following industries: Local government / councils, universities, and state power and utilities agencies.
