By @SimonCocking. Ireland is booming for innovation, creativity and excellence in a whole range of areas. The Internet of Things is one area in particular where things are booming. We know that the following list is probably not completely comprehensive. Once you start collecting names, then more come out of the woodwork.

This first long list is the result of everyone who submitted their company for consideration for the inaugural Irish Tech News IoT Awards 2017. The announcement of the ultimate winners will be made on May 30th at DCU Alpha Campus and tickets are still available here. For more information on the event and the exciting discussion panels that will be taking place, see here too. To see more about our lead event sponsors, Host in Ireland read our interview with their founder and CEO Garry Connolly here.
