LoRa Alliance® Brings LoRaWAN® World Expo to Paris in June 2020

World’s Largest LoRaWAN Event to Focus on the Future of LoRaWAN and Celebrate the LoRa Alliance’s 5th Anniversary

Fremont, California – Mar. 5, 2020 – The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN® standard for the Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), today formally introduced the LoRaWAN World Expo taking place at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France on June 9-10, 2020. The event will celebrate the LoRa Alliance’s 5th Anniversary by looking ahead to the technology’s future. Featuring world-renowned technologists and futurists alongside the next generation of global IoT leaders shaping tomorrow, the event will address how IoT is changing the way we live and work and how our lives can be improved. Speakers and exhibitors will also address the extraordinary impact LoRaWAN is making in sustainability, safety and efficiencies across a range of areas that impact quality of life and the world we live in.

The event will build on the technology’s massive growth over the past 5 years. Last year alone, LoRaWAN led the market with massive IoT deployments rolling out at scale, cementing the technology as the leading low power wide area networking (LPWAN) standard. For 2019, the LoRa Alliance reported 33% growth in LoRaWAN network operators and 43% growth in country availability, as well as nearly 25% growth in the number of LoRaWAN CertifiedCM devices available to the market.

“LoRaWAN World Expo offers the best opportunity this year to engage with the LoRaWAN community and experience in person how we are connecting a smarter planet,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “With an expected audience of more than 2,000 attendees, there is no better opportunity to see how companies are leveraging LoRaWAN in their businesses and achieving strong ROIs. Importantly, we will share our vision for the next 5 years and the future of LoRaWAN and how it will empower sustainable IoT businesses to maximize efficiency, improve quality of life and protect the planet’s resources.”
