Sponsored by Businesswire

Advantech, a pioneer of advanced IoT intelligence systems and embedded platforms, kicks-off its global Advantech Connect Online Partner Conference on Feb. 24, 2021. As part of a three-month international series of events, Advantech Connect aims to share how organizations can co-create the future of the IoT world together with Advantech. With an expected attendance of over 30,000, the upcoming virtual conference will bring together global c-suite executives and technical leaders to innovate and collaborate on how best to leverage IoT solutions to tackle current challenges around the world.

Our goal is to equip global technology leaders with the tools and knowledge to advance the world of IoT, so they can enable quicker and more efficient digital transformation within their organizations.”
