Held annually, the M2M Summit is the key German event for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) subsector. It attracts all of the significant M2M players in the German and German-speaking markets of Austria and Switzerland including the M2M divisions of the telecommunications service providers such as Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone Germany and Swisscom.
Canada was “partner country” in 2011 and has had in cooperation with Wavefront, the Vancouver-based Centre of Excellence for Wireless Commercialization and Research, a national stand for the past 3 years. Wavefront in cooperation with the Trade Commissioner Service is planning another Canadian stand in 2014 encompassing 6 exhibitors. Canada’s presence at the M2M Summit will be part of a week-long mission to Germany and two additional European markets as part of the Wavefront Global Market Linkages Program.
Cliff Singleton (firstname.lastname@example.org), Trade Commissioner responsible for the telecommunications sector in the German market, will be present at the event to support Canadian exhibitors in establishing contact with the relevant market players. He will be promoting the Canadian presence in advance of the event and be working with exhibiting companies in preparing for their market entry. Services from the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) are offered free of charge to Canadian companies and organizations.
