The Connected Conference, the first event dedicated to the connected hardware industry, will be held on June 18-19, 2014 at La Halle Freyssinet in Paris, France.
Hosted by Rude Media, European publisher of the Rude Baguette—the first English-language technology authority on the French startup ecosystem—the Connected Conference will gather international technology innovators and visionaries to discuss subjects including the future of connected hardware, the internet of things, open source hardware, 3D printing, and hardware-enabled software.
“The evolution of connected technology has spanned electronic rabbits to fitness devices to home security monitoring, connecting the world in which we live through the phenomenon known as the internet of things,” said Liam Boogar, co-founder, CEO and editor of Rude Baguette and organizer of the Connected Conference. “This conference explores beyond the latest wearable and printable gadgets, to examine how connected technology will affect our lives, what barriers limit its growth, and what opportunities exist in our connected world.”
The agenda will feature keynotes, panel discussions and fireside chats addressing the connected hardware ecosystem and its evolution, and an exhibition hall of 25 technology companies exhibiting their innovation in the connected space. Over 500 attendees from the hardware, mobile technology, consumer device, startup and venture capital industries are expected.
The Connected Conference will focus on crowdfunding as a potential source of technological revolution through a startup crowdfunding competition offering a novel twist on traditional competitions that are a hallmark of many technology conferences. Powered by Indiegogo, ten crowdfunding projects will launch campaigns during the conference, with exhibition hall stands and videos in between conference sessions.
Three campaigns receiving the highest backing from attendees will have the opportunity to pitch on stage.
Speakers include: Pascal Cagni, former general manager, vice-president, EMEIA, Apple; Zeesha Currimbhoy, vice-president augmented intelligence, Evernote; Alban Denoyel, CEO, Sketchfab; Bram de Zwart, CEO, 3D Hubs; Romain Dillet, writer, TechCrunch; Kate Drane, design, tech and hardware lead, Indiegogo; Laurent Fournier, senior director business development, Qualcomm Europe; Rafi Haladjian, CEO, Sen.se; Jack Lang, co-founder, Raspberry Pi; Ludovic Le Moan, CEO, co-founder, Sigfox; Loic Poirier, CEO, Archos; Fred Potter, CEO, Netatmo; Kegan Schouwenburg, CEO, co-founder, Sols.
