Sheboygan, Wisconsin – The Wisconsin Internet of Things Council (WIoT) will host their first in-person symposium since the COVID-19 pandemic at the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
Chairman of the Council Jeremy Udovich said, “This is really exciting as one of the real value propositions of the Council is the beneficial exchange of information received from networking with new friends that are also reinventing their business models and how their products are built.”
The speakers for the symposium include Badger Meter Director of Marketing for the Utility Services John Fillinger, CEO and founder of the Ethical AI Consortium (EAIC) Sarah Alt, AVNET VP of Operations and Supply Chain Richard Diaz, and Director of Supply Chain Business Development Bill Ogden.
Since its inception in September 2019, the council has had two in-person events before going virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Council Project Coordinator Sala Sander said, “We continued to have our meetups and quarterly symposiums online. We wanted to maintain our goal of promoting Wisconsin as the epicenter for IoT and for driving technological advancements by continuing the mutual exchange of information and ideas relative to the Internet of Things.”
With an increase in vaccines and a decrease in illnesses, and as the government begins to relax prior COVID-19 restrictions, the Council intends to pick up where they left off. The Council will, however, continue to hold virtual meetups for members unable to attend in-person events.
The WIoT will host their next in-person quarterly meeting in Milwaukee later this year. There will be virtual statewide bi-monthly meetups until then, with the next one taking place in the second week of August.
