"Let's "IoTize" M2M Industry and Verticals"

The second edition of M2M Innovation World showed the dynamism of the M2M services and their ecosystem boosted by the disruptive power of the Internet of Things. With 370 participants, +42% compared to previous edition, and a line-up of 80 speakers, the conference has indeed kept its promise to deliver inspirations to innovate for all the value chain stakeholders.
The "IoTization" of companies and M2M processes was the opening theme and main thread of the conference. While the "traditional" M2M world applied to Energy, Industry, and Automotive innovates through IP and data-centric models, Big Data, defragmentation..., the wave of the Internet of Things also opens up M2M to new verticals such as Retail, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Healthcare.  
Another highlight, the "Industrial Internet" was at the centre of the exchanges thanks to the introductory workshop built with Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The "Connected Life Day" also met success. This full day with two parallel streams was dedicated to the Internet of Things latest applications.
As a part of the 1480-participant World Smart Week, the 2014 edition has also built fruitful bridges with co-located conferences on NFC and other proximity technologies, e-ID and digital security.
