In professional development, it’s all about trust. Can you trust that the leaders of your seminars are really the right people to guide your continuing education and the strategy for your company?

Well, since anyone can lie about quantity and quality of experience, one positive way to vet an instructor is to look to their educations. At least, that’s how we feel when we’re building the faculty for the IoT Evolution Expo, coming up July 11 to 14 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. That’s why we go out of our way to invite industry folks who pair years of experience with doctorates in technology and engineering to join our speaker’s bureau and impart their knowledge on to you. Here are some of our luminaries for the upcoming conference:
