The first 2017 edition organized by the Faculty of Engineering ESIB, Saint Joseph University of Beirut, gathered 400 participants around insightful discussions and exhibitions demonstrating that Lebanon has the required ecosystem to develop innovative IoT solutions for a wide variety of applications.

For the 2019 edition, ESIB engages a steering committee of distinguished professionals from ANSYS, AutomatiX, Berytech, CardioDiagnostics, Château Kefraya, CME, Data Consult, IM Capital, Joseph Tehini & Fils, LCTechHub, Scriptr, and SMG-Energy.

The 2019 edition will cover IoT end-to-end chain and applications with a special focus on IoT network infrastructure and regulations, cloud platforms, devices and things, agrofood, energy, and water management. Speakers from different backgrounds will present the recent innovations, opportunities, and research advances in these sectors.

IoT-Leb 19 will focus on fostering collaboration by bringing together all the IoT stakeholders such as technology and infrastructure providers, industries, universities, public sector, entrepreneurs, funders, and incubators.


IoT-Leb 19 will be a two-day event featuring inspiring keynotes, specialized sessions, dynamic panels, an exhibition, and a hackathon.
