Event Description

IoT-Leb is a leading IoT event that actively contributes to the development of a mature IoT ecosystem in Lebanon. The mission of IoT-Leb is twofold: bringing the IoT into the Lebanese market and positioning Lebanon on the IoT world map. The first 2017 edition organized by the Faculty of Engineering ESIB, Saint Joseph University of Beirut, gathered 400 participants around insightful discussions and exhibitions demonstrating that Lebanon has the required ecosystem to develop innovative IoT solutions for a wide variety of applications.
