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 as well as larger, often multi-day ThingsCon Conferences.

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