The Z-Wave Alliance is hosting their annual Z-Wave Fall Summit on September 24-26, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA. Twice a year, the 700+ member consortium holds member summits in the U.S. and in Europe where attendees listen to and participate in a series of panels, fireside chats, and workshops led by industry leaders and peers on smart home and IoT.
The two-day event will take place at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue and commence with a keynote by Katelyn Mason of Google on The Future of the Intelligent Interactions, with insight into future products that will take advantage of ambient computing and contextual awareness. Throughout the Summit, attendees will gain valuable knowledge on market trends from thought leaders and analysts and hear about case studies and implementing Z-Wave in different IoT applications.
