SMP: How can attendees and other stakeholders get involved?

BM: In today’s corporate environment of diminishing budgets, ever squeezing margins, and limited time, it isn’t easy to justify the cost of attending a physical conference, or to take time out of the office.  That’s why we decided to create IoT Slam as a virtual event, to bring you fresh and insightful content direct to your home, office or mobile device. This gives attendees all the value of a real event, without the significant price tag associated with an in-person event.

Access to the event is priced with affordability in mind. Tickets can be secured from $199 for full access to live proceedings as well as content hosted online for three months post event. SMP readers can also benefit from a special 30% discounts.
