The event will gather all Sigfox Operators coming from around the world as well as over 400 business partners and 1,000 professionals who are contributing to the IoT revolution.

“The Sigfox World IoT Expo represents an incredible milestone in our journey, and is set to become a landmark in the IoT landscape.
