Sido, the Internet of things gets a helping hand with “ExpoBooster”

On the 7th and 8th of April, 4200 visitors attended the first SIdO, a professional event exploring the Internet of Things (IoT).

Held in a region that has been awarded the «French Tech» label, the event attracted the participation of numerous partners, as well as exhibitors who were delighted to present their innovations to traditional companies keen to get involved in the new digital world.

All of these factors contributed to making SIdO a resounding success.
The warm welcome received by the event began right from its genesis.

A year ago, the two organisers, Stéphanie Gibert and Paola Jesson, gained the confidence of local actors, including the Rhône-Alpes region and the Greater Lyon area, as they demonstrated their innovative approach.

As a result, they were awarded financial and operational assistance through the trade show incubator « ExpoBooster ».

The last show to be awarded such assistance was Innorobo.
We hope that SIdO goes on to enjoy the same success! 


SIdO key figures:

  • 4 200  professional visitors
  • 110 exhibitors
  • 42 conferences
  • 175 speakers
  • 1 000 followers
