We have earlier published the list of top cities hosting Internet of Things events throughout the world and the winner was (1st) London (UK) followed by (2nd) Chicago (US), (3rd) Toronto (Canada) and (also 3rd) New Delhi (India).
That list however treats all city destinations individually and does not group results by country. So which is the country that does most around IoT in 2017 (well at least events wise)? You could probably have guessed by now especially if you looked into our IoT events database but here are the results in case you’re still curious:
- 1st place: United States (29 events)
- 2nd place: United Kingdom (15 events)
- 3rd place: Germany (9 events)
- 4th place: India (7 events)
- 5th place: Canada (6 events)
The overall relative percentage:
This statistics is based on our research of Internet of Things related events for period 2016 Q4 – 2017, all data extracted from open sources available in English. We made the database absolutely free to download here, just click/tap on “CSV”, “Excel” or “PDF” button. Feel free to use it in your own analytics or simply to plan where to demo your products or learn more about the trends of connected things industry in 2017.
P.S. We do understand our research on IoT expos and conferences in 2017 is not excessive as new events will be announced going forward. Once our database is updated, this post will be updated with a link to the new version. Please feel free to use the comments section to inform us about new events posting a link to official website.
