Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators a chance to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees, drawn from across a range of sectors and specialities.

This special event will look at M2M and IOT, which looks set impact on on all our personal and working lives, with applications for all sectors, including Health (heart monitors), Build (smart thermostats, fire systems), Automobile, Retail and other spaces.
