Institution of Engineering and Technology, India (IET India) will host the IET Future Tech Congress, on the theme ‘Decoding tomorrow’s customer demands’. The two-day technology event is all set to take place in a ‘phygital’ format (completely accessible both physically, and digitally) on 22 - 23 November 2022. 

The IoT India Congress was the annual flagship tech event organised by IET India since 2016. Termed as the Platform of Platforms for the Internet of Things, the focus of the event was to mainstream the possibilities that IoT held - both in terms of tech innovation and creation of business value. With 4 successful editions untill 2019, more than 350 speakers, and 5000 attendees (72% of whom were CXOs and decision makers from more than 20 industries) participating every year, it was one of the most important tech conferences for digital technology stakeholders in the region. 

With the widespread adoption of IoT, the IET Future Tech Panel has reimagined the popular event in the form of the new and improved IET Future Tech Congress that is conceptualized to encompass a wide range of future and emerging technologies beyond IoT such as AI, blockchain, XR/VR and even Digital Twin technology. The IET Future Tech Panel has been consistently contributing to key impact sectors by enabling positive changes through AI, Blockchain, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Quantum Computing and IoT as well. 

According to Mr. Shekhar Sanyal, Country Head and Director, IET India, “The IET Future Tech Congress was launched with the idea of facilitating exchange of knowledge and ideas on emerging technologies to build future-forward solutions. Through this event, we hope to construct a futurescape of tomorrow’s customers and their demands by encouraging new ideas and innovative recommendations. We are all set to curate panels of renowned industry experts and thought leaders, and look forward to widespread participation from all stakeholders in the technology ecosystem” 

Within the realm of customer demands, the IET Future Tech Congress 2022 will focus on four high-impact sectors: Healthcare, Manufacturing, Fintech and Supply Chain & Logistics. The event will examine innovative applications of emerging technologies like Blockchain, AI and Digital Twins in a future characterised by hyper-personalisation and hyper-localisation. The conference includes carefully curated use cases, debates and spotlight sessions on topics such as virtual simulations for product designing through Digital Twin, Interoperable health records through Blockchain technology, the use of human twin in diagnostics and decentralised finance.
