Hunt For India’s IoT Thought Leaders Has Begun

IoT India Congress has invited entries for its inaugural IoT Thought Leadership Awards 2016.


IoT has taken the entire world by storm—including India. However, while many Indian companies have embarked on their IoT journeys, there has been no word on who amongst all understands the IoT space the best and is a thought leader. This is bound to change as IoT India Congress has started inviting entries for its inaugural IoT Thought Leadership Awards 2016.

The IoT Congress aims to reward individual excellence and leadership in the IoT ecosystem and these awards are just one of its steps.

“The IoT India Congress 2016 is set to be the biggest forum bringing all the prominent IoT players in the country on one platform. With this award, we aim to give impetus to the individuals who have played a critical role in evolving revolution of IoT in India.” Dr. Rishi Bhatnagar, the Chairman of the IoT India Congress organising committee said in a statement. 

Interested leaders can send in their nominations to IoT Congress India jury by 22nd August 2016. The jury would then go through their profiles, review their contributions towards the advancement of the Internet of Things or its adoption in India, and would then come up with its list of winners.

Included in the jury are some well-known industry names such as Sir Robin Saxby, Founder and Ex-CEO, ARM Holdings; TV Ramachandran, Hon FIET, President, Broadband India Forum; Dr Richard Mark Soley, Chairman and CEO at Object Management Group; Charles Anderson, Vice President, Head of Mobility & Internet of Things (IoT), IDC Asia / Pacific; and Jaideep Mehta, Managing Director – IDC India and South Asia.

Names of award winners will be announced on September 7th, during the upcoming IoT India Congress 2016 event, which has been conceptualised and designed by the members of the The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) — an independent think-tank led by select Industry leaders.  It is a three-day event, which will be held in Bengaluru from Sept 6-8, will be supported by the ministry of communications and information technology’s department of telecommunications.
