Is this going to be yet another IoT conference?

No, we focus on knowledge and skills. We want you to walk away as a LoRaWAN expert. We are also going to be pretty critical towards the technology. We need to push LoRaWAN pass the hype. And the only way we can do that is by understanding where it really can deliver value.

Why do you include a free online basic LoRaWAN course?

We want to get the most out of the few days we are together in Amsterdam. We live in a world where we can learn a lot online. It would be a waste of our valuable time we could otherwise spend on making nice IoT applications.

Where should I stay?

Of course you are free to book your stay anywhere, but we have made deals with three different hotels in the neighbourhood of the conference. You will receive details about these upon confirmation of your ticket purchase.

While we expect that everyone should be able to attend all workshops, if certain workshops get highly demanded, tickets with priority workshop attendance will be able to have a spot for sure. For the others, it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.

The exact content of the goodie bags is unknown for the moment, however there will be devices, and the goodie bag XL will have more of these devices, or better ones.

Food vouchers are provided with the All inclusive ticket. However, even if you do not have vouchers, food will be available to buy at the conference.

Tickets including meeting rooms mean that you will have the possibility to book meeting rooms during the conference.

The course certification refers to the online course offered to all conference attendees. It will start before The Things Conference to make sure that everyone has the basic knowledge enabling us to go further during the conference. After completion of the online course, Complete and All inclusive ticket holders will receive an official course certification.
