Internet of Things (IoT) is Transforming Hershey’s Business… What Could it do for You?

Please join us for this exclusive, senior executive roundtable event. You will have an opportunity to meet with your peers, including other IoT consortium* companies, Hershey, New Signature and Microsoft to learn how to develop a Connected Enterprise Roadmap and the steps to jumpstart your IoT initiatives. In addition, this will be an opportunity to network and discuss strategies for transforming your business with IoT and Advanced Analytics.

This is an invitation only event, open to those invited and one additional colleague from their organization.
