Emerging Opportunities in IoT

Smart Cities, Smart Utilities, Smart Agriculture, all part of the IoT of the future. Easy to say but how can we in practical terms start to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) in the workplace and society?

With the explosive growth of Internet of Things (IoT) uses and adoption, there are some great opportunities for businesses who join the IoT revolution early. Businesses that who manage to transform and empower themselves through the benefits of IoT could create undeniable competitive advantages.

AWISE 2020 Sponsors

The line up of AWISE 2020 events, speakers, and workshops has been made possible thanks to the support of the following sponsors.


AWISE (Albury-Wodonga Innovation Summit & EXPO) is an annual event hosted from Wodonga in North East Victoria to explore, celebrate, and learn about
advancements in Innovation locally, nationally, and globally. In previous years we have run a full day event bringing together industry, business, and education institutions; however, due to the present lock downs and social distancing, we are planning to run the program over a series of webinars and workshops with a hybrid delivery model allowing where practical for face to face attendance but encouraging online attendance.

In 2020, through the series of webinars and workshops we plan to explore Innovation:

  • What should you be thinking about? (Strategic Innovation),
  • How could you be changing? (Technical Innovation), and
  • How would you actually do it? (Operational Innovation)

We’ll be running one session each week from mid-October through to December. The program this year includes the following:

Scheduled Sessions:

  • 4th November – Emerging opportunities in IoT
  • 11th November – Emerging uses of AI in Business
  • 18th November – Introduction to 5G Technology for Business
  • 25th November – The future of Robots in the Workplace
  • 2nd December – Cyber Security for Small Business

Future Sessions:

  • Digital Transformation with the NBN
  • Running your Business in the Cloud
  • Leveraging Automation in your Business

Past Sessions: (recordings coming)

  • 21st October – Connecting with your future customers
  • 28th October – Microlearning and the Modern Workplace
