All Member Meeting - 14 September

The focal point for this year’s event will be the all member meeting, on 14 September, which is free to attend and is open to all levels of membership.  This full day session – from 09:00-17:00 – will be followed by a reception on Lake Washington.

The morning session will be a technology workshop where members will present their ideas on the future vision and requirements for Bluetooth technology – looking out to 2025 and beyond. The format will be short and concise 10 minute visionary presentations from member representatives and will conclude with a networking workshop, to discuss, build momentum and further develop the most interesting ideas.  This should be an exciting session and an opportunity to interact with your peers around the future of Bluetooth technology.  We are expecting that presentation slots will be popular, so if you would like to present your ideas please select your interest during registration and more details will be sent out to you. If you would just like to listen, we are also expecting strong attendance so do register soon!

The afternoon session will feature updates from the major SIG working groups on specification developments and future roadmaps, so attendees can catch up on everything that is going on in the SIG. In the evening, from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, we invite you to join us on a boat cruise on Lake Washington, featuring our annual member awards as well as hors d’oeuvres, drinks and the opportunity to network with colleagues, staff and Board Directors.
