#MOREnet2017 – Connecting in the Internet of Everything – Keynotes and Featured Speakers Announced!

There are computer chips in everything- our cars, lights, coffee makers, TVs, clothes and buildings. Just about all day, every day we are somehow connected through the Internet. The Internet of Everything has given us richer experiences, simplified aspects of our life, and has allowed unprecedented opportunity for businesses and learning opportunities for students while enabling real-time virtual collaboration opportunities for patrons.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) extends beyond the Internet of Things (IoT) that emphasizes machine-to-machine communications to also encompass the very valuable people and processes. Join us for the 2017 MOREnet Annual Conference as we come together to strengthen our partnerships with our peers and learn new processes that will keep us Connecting in the Internet of Everything.

We are pleased to announce several featured speakers and our Monday keynote. Continue to watch the website as new featured speakers may be added.
