EdgeX Foundry joined the 210,000 visitors that spent last week at Hannover Messe. Several member companies were on-site to help us celebrate our 1st anniversary, welcome new members and share what EdgeX can do! Check out our photo album and let us know if you have photos to add!
EdgeX Foundry had a strong showing in our booth (Hall 6: B17) with members Canonical, IOTech, IoTium, RSA, Dell EMC, SoftwareAG/Cumulocity and VMware displaying interactive IIoT demos.
More than 1,500 visitors, media and analysts stopped by the booth to learn more about EdgeX.

One of the highlights of the show was the EdgeX Foundry and Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) Networking Dinner, which was presented by member NetFoundry.
Another highlight was recognizing the winners of the first annual EdgeX Foundry Community Awards. Congratulations, again, to Drasko Draskovic, CEO and Founder of Mainflux, and Tony Espy, Technical Architect for Devices and IoT for Canonical, Ltd, for winning Innovation Awards and Andy Foster, Product Director for IOTech, and Drasko Draskovic are being honored with Contribution Awards.
