Boosted by the knock-on effects of 5G technology and “new infrastructures”, IoT is entering an all-new phase in its development. It is intricately linked with electronics manufacturing in many important ways. In order to keep abreast with general industry trends, NEPCON CHINA 2021 has opted to concurrently stage the upcoming show with the 15th presentation of IOTE 2021 sponsored by the Shenzhen Internet of Things Industry Association (SZIOT). These two concurrently shows will boast a much bigger line-up of exhibitors and a larger number of visitors, bringing under one roof expanded coverage for the fastest developing fields including IOT perception layer - MEMS, RFID, smart card, sensors, barcode, biometrics, video recognition; network transport layer - NB-IoT, LoRa, 2G/3G/4G/5G, eSIM, ZigBee, Bluetooth, GPRS, WIFI, UWB, Z-wave; computation and platform layer - cloud computing, edge computing, cloud platform, big data & data security, artificial intelligence; as well as the application layer - real-time precision positioning, smart retail, unmanned retail, industry 4.0, intelligent logistics system (ILS), smart city, and smart home.

NEPCON China entered into partnership with IOTE, the preeminent IoT trade show, after signing a cooperation agreement and holding a joint media briefing in 30th October, 2020. This initiative serves the positive purpose of fully bringing both parties’ strong suits to bear to drive coordinated development between IoT and the electronics manufacturing industry.
