It’s not only rock stars that go on tour, engineers do, too. The Things Conference on Tour is heading to Pisa, Italy, and you better be ready.
The Zerynth team is hosting the conference, and we hope you can make it to Pisa this October. So, read on to find out what the main topics are, who is joining us, when you need to start packing your bags, and how to get the tickets.
More about The Things Conference
The Things Conference is an inclusive event where all the participants get a chance to gain real-life experience with the LoRaWAN ecosystem. Everyone will bring their laptops and get ready for some awesome learning experiences.
Do you remember when we wrote about the Things Conference we went to this spring? With 750 visitors from 45 countries around the world, The Things Conference in Amsterdam this spring was a huge success, and we had a lot of fun.

To replicate this event on a global level, and to make it accessible to people in different countries, The Things Conference decided to go on a World Tour. After a few other stops, it’s coming right where we are. So, we are very happy to announce that we’ll be hosting The Things Conference Italy.

The Things Conference Italy: Where and when
The Thing Conference Italy will take place on the 11th of October this year, at the innovative GATE Centre (where Zerynth’s R&D offices are). And since Zerynth is the main organizer you’ll get a chance to meet the team.
The GATE Centre is just 5 minutes from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which means your coffee break will also serve as a photo op. Meanwhile, check out the photos of the recent inauguration of the GATE Centre:
Visit the Internet Festival and Maker Faire Rome
Maker Faire Rome and the Internet Festival in Pisa are happening around the same time as well, so it seems that Italy is the right place to visit this autumn. Pack your bags and surround yourself with great technology, beauty, and art.
The Internet Festival takes place from the 11th until the 14th of October, and it’s an excellent chance to explore Pisa since it’s happening all over the city. You can see from the program that the topics cover everything from consumer electronics to LEGO.
While you’re planning the trip to Italy this October, here are some images of Pisa to help you along:
