Partnerships Focused on High Performance Computing and Internet of Things
ROSEMONT, IL, February 19, 2014 - Trade Show Executive Magazine has named Sensors Expo & Conference an honoree of the 2014 Fastest 50 Awards - recognizing growth in exhibit space, growth in the number of exhibitors and growth in attendance. Plans are fully underway for the growth to continue as Sensors Expo announces expanded partnerships with High-Performance Computing Conference (HPCC) and IPSO Alliance for Sensors 2014 Expo & Conference, taking place at The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, June 24-June 26.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by the leading events industry magazine as one of the fastest growing shows in the country," said Wendy Loew, Group Show Director. "We were in fact a 'triple crown' winner with growth in all three categories that the judges measured. We have incredible plans for the upcoming event in June to continue our growth, starting with new and expanded partnerships in cutting-edge technology areas."
In 2014, Sensors will co-locate with HPCC to feature the best and brightest technology partners from the processing, performance computing, security, data storage and network industries to highlight the emergence of ubiquitous distributed computing technology. The HPCC Pavilion and Conference will cover challenges and solutions from a number of industry partners and feature industry leaders across Embedded Computing. Also new on the Expo Floor, will be the Mouser Electronics Pavilion, a dedicated exhibit area showcasing Mouser's leading partners in the sensors industry.
"We are excited to bring our community of embedded and high-performance computing professionals back to Sensors Expo this year. 2013 was a huge success for our community, and recognizing the interaction between the sensor and the system is a marriage that we see as central to the future of electronic design," said Aaron Foellmi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "HPCC is excited to expand our presence this year, and bring an even stronger system perspective to this growing and exciting event."
Sensors Expo will also be expanding its partnership with the IPSO (Internet Protocol for Smart Objects) Alliance in 2014, to expand the Internet of Things (IoT) Pavilion on the Expo floor showcasing technologies enabling IoT through the use of IP in sensor/control and M2M applications, as well as showcase the ten semi-finalists of the IPSO Challenge. IoT will also be covered in the Conference Program with a Pre-Conference Symposium "Making the Internet of Things a Reality: A Toolkit for Designing Smart," led by Will Tu, Director of Embedded for ARM. Presenters in the symposium will share insight and expert knowledge on the current state of the IoT market and future technology trends. The Sensors Conference will also offer a new M2M Track as well as an IoT: Internet of Things Track, both sponsored by ARM with sessions on "Apples-to-Apples. Machine-to-Machines. Machines-to-Apples? Connecting Everything through the Internet of Things and Sensing," "Location in the Internet of Things: OGC's SensorThings," and more.
"We are delighted to partner with Sensors Expo again. We look forward to co-hosting the IPSO CHALLENGE at this expanded IoT venue, and continuing to support the development and adoption of internet connected smart devices," said Nick Ashworth, Chairman of the IPSO Alliance.
