While ThingsCon started out as a conference, it has since grown into a global community. Events around the globe serve as the backbone of that community.

Upcoming events

ThingsCon Salons & Conferences

ThingsCon events come in two sizes: Smaller, more intimate ThingsCon Salons that often focus on one topic and larger, often multi-day ThingsCon Conferences.

Additionally, we organize various activities to advocate for creating a responsible IoT. This includes research, publications and field research trips like excursions to the hardware ecosystem of Shenzhen, China.
