I’ve been to Barcelona many times. My impression of Barcelona this year is that it’s coming of age regarding Internet of Things and Connected Car.
Speaking to colleagues and partners, I think that’s part of a general view too. I will be sending some reports back to the Team, so look out for some news postings.
As usual, much of the real business is being done on the side lines. Meetings in hotel lobbies, hired meeting rooms…or even just coffee conversations snatched on stands and cafe corners. Several sources have confided to me about some deals they’re doing, which will have an impact on the connected car scene, but won’t be announced for some while yet. I think these are exciting times.
