ClearObject is aiming to explain how companies can be transformed by embracing the power of the Internet of Things. The Fishers-based company has organized IndyIoT 2017: The New Crossroads of IoT from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 25 at 502 East Event Centre in Carmel.

The internet of things is the connection of any device that has an on/off switch to the internet and vice versa.

“We’ve been through somewhat of a journey with this event each year,” said John McDonald, CEO of ClearObject. “The theme the first was along the lines of ‘what is the internet of things,’ and us trying to explain it to people. Last year, we were looking to display companies mostly here in Indiana and what they were doing with the internet of things. This year, it’s about making a connection between the internet of things and the Indiana economy very clear to people who attend.”

There will be five guest speakers who will give 10-minute burst presentations, including Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness.

“Although the people we selected are local personalities, the companies that they are working with and the customers they have are all global,” McDonald said.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with the speakers during a panel discussion moderated by Gerry Dick of Inside INdiana Business.

“The real opportunity here is not just for Gerry to ask questions but for folks at the event to get their curiosities satisfied,” McDonald said.

Tickets cost $25 per person. The event is open to the public. To register visit
