Bluetooth Asia 2018 Event to Focus on Commercial and Industrial IoT

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is returning to Shenzhen, China to present at Bluetooth Asia 2018 on May 30-31. Market influencers, developers, and tech-driven consumers will come together at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center for hands-on experiences with the latest Bluetooth technology and to learn from the industry’s top thought leaders what the future holds for fast-growing solution areas, such as device networks and location services, as well as emerging Bluetooth markets, including Smart Building, Smart Industry, Smart City, and Smart Home.

Echoing the large-scale networking capabilities made possible by the recent launch of Bluetooth mesh, this year’s event will focus on how Bluetooth can be deployed in commercial and industrial settings. Senior expert presenters from top organizations such as Alibaba AI Labs, Bosch, CCSA, Mobike, Philips Lighting, Taipei Smart City, and Ximmerse will discuss how Bluetooth is impacting these new markets, as well as the latest applications and use cases made possible with Bluetooth mesh networking.

Bluetooth Asia consistently brings together a forward-thinking Chinese audience who attend to share and gain knowledge about what is on the horizon for connected spaces. The 2018 event expands on last year’s successful developer workshop series with an impressive schedule of seminars led by the Bluetooth SIG, Bright Beacon, Dialog Semiconductor, NextGen, Nordic Semiconductor, Teledyne Lecroy, and Texas Instruments. Attendees will learn about the newest techniques and tools for implementing Bluetooth technology into their products and can participate in hands-on activities around developing peripherals, beacons, and mesh technology using Bluetooth. The event will also feature a Meet the Expert area where attendees will have the opportunity to get answers to questions on Bluetooth SIG membership, product qualification, and branding.
