I would like to be kept informed about the The Things Conference on Tour Asia Pacific 2020 Virtual Conference
The Things Conference on Tour Asia Pacific
2020 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
Following on from our highly successful 2019 Conference, The Growing Data Foundation is pleased to announce that we will once again be hosting The Things Conference Asia Pacific On Tour from 25-27 November, 2020 as a Virtual Conference from our home in Adelaide, South Australia. Please put the dates in your diary.
The Things Conference Asia Pacific On Tour aims to provide a showcase of the world’s largest, open Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem – The Things Network. It facilitates a rare opportunity for conference participants to develop their IoT knowledge and skills and to learn how industry and community leaders are leveraging the power of this technology to solve economic, social and environmental problems in local and global contexts.
In 2020, the conference will be conducted in a virtual format, but will still feature an exciting mix of: keynote addresses; panel discussions; workshop sessions; and masterclasses.
We will also be offering a Virtual Conference Exhibition Space in partnership with Rogue Lumens. Our event will be the first time that this new and innovative approach to Virtual Exhibitions will be made publicly available in Australia. This partnership will enable Sponsors to host a space where they can showcase their products, and conference participants can virtually ‘pop’ in to have a chat with sponsors as per an exhibition booth experience or go off to a breakout room for a more private conversation.
The program (which is currently being finalised) will feature an impressive line up of domestic and international presenters across the following five themes: Technical; AgTech; Education; Environment; and Smart Cities.
At this time we are pleased to announce the involvement of the following conference presenters:
- Johan Stokking, Tech Lead and Co-founder, The Things Network & CTO, the Things Industries, The Netherlands
- Wienke Giezeman, Tech Lead and Co-founder, The Things Network & CTO, the Things Industries, The Netherlands
- Jan Jongboom, Co-founder and CTO, Edge Impulse, The Netherlands
- Matthew Way, Founder, Eco-Node, New Zealand
- Laurens de Groot, Co-founder, Smart Parks, The Netherlands
- Andrew Sargent, 2019 Nuffield Scholar, Australia
- Josh Helbig, Co-owner, Beam Internet, Australia
More conference information will be released in the next few weeks. Please register your interest in the 2020 Virtual Conference by using the MailChimp form opposite.
We look forward to your involvement in this exciting event.

Introducing South Australia: Hope you can visit us soon!
A brilliant blend.
When visiting the city, you might want to take yourself on a cultural and historic walk along Adelaide’s North Terrace visiting the Art Gallery, Museum and State Library. Or you might want to indulge in some serious retail therapy in Rundle Mall, or go for a wander in the city’s beautiful botanic gardens.
If you love sport, you might like to follow in the footsteps of sporting champions and attend a sporting event at the picturesque Adelaide Oval, view the Bradman Collection – a world class exhibition dedicated to the legendary cricketer who made Adelaide his home, or watch the city come to life while listening to your favourite party tunes, by doing a climb of the oval’s iconic roofline after dark. The city hosts the annual Australian International 3 day Event – one of only six, five-star equestrian events in the world, and is blessed with many golf courses and beautiful sandy beaches located in cosmopolitan seaside suburbs, which are fantastic for shopping, fishing and other outdoor recreation activities.
Adelaide is proud of its reputation as the ‘festival state’. Each year the city stages a diversity of cultural festivals that attract visitors from all over the world. These include the Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Festival, WOMADelaide, OzAsia, International Guitar Festival, Cabaret Festival, South Australian Living Arts (SALA) Festival, Feast and Adelaide Film Festival, to name just a few.
Just a short drive from Adelaide are the famous wine regions of McLaren Vale, the Adelaide Hills, Clare and Barossa where you can taste a wide selection of quality wines, while enjoying fantastic food created from South Australia’s finest regional produce. If you have more time, you can enjoy the unique attractions of Kangaroo Island, the Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, South East or Riverland regions.
