The Things Conference worldwide
So you want to organize The Things Conference?
Let me start by explaining the differences between The Things Conference (global) and The Things Conference on Tour.
- The Things Conference – Once a year, the global conference takes place in Amsterdam for 1000+ people from all over the world. The global conference is organized by The Things Network core team and is the biggest LoRaWAN conference worldwide.

- The Things Conference on Tour – Everyone who has the technical know-how and the guts to organize a conference is welcomed to do so. The Things Conferences on Tour have a clear national or regional focus and share the mission and culture of The Things Conference.
A few guidelines for The Things Conference on Tour are created to maintain a certain consistency worldwide:
- At least 100 visitors join The Things Conference on Tour.
- The duration of the conference is 1 full day and can be extended to 2 days on request.
- All events contain keynotes, hands-on workshops and networking activities.
- The Things Conference on Tour is an inclusive event and has a diverse group of visitors with a variety of gender, age, ethnicity and technical know-how.
- The conference is aimed at people that want to get serious with LoRaWAN. Don’t be hesitant to charge a ticket fee.
- Do you envision to make the event profitable? That’s alright as long as there’s a formal agreement in place that agrees on a profit share and that guarantees that the right culture is kept.
- You are freely allowed to use the name and branding of The Things Conference as long as you commit to the branding guidelines. Read more in the Branding & Promotion post.
