Carol Stream, Ill. – June 7, 2019 – At a dinner held on June 6, individuals in the IoT (Internet of Things) space gathered to network, learn, and celebrate, as Connected World recognized tech-savvy women at its annual Women of M2M and IoT dinner, sponsored by MultiTech.

Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine, and president of Specialty Publishing Media, recognized each woman in attendance. In addition to celebrating the women, the event also served as an opportunity to foster discussion and education in a collaborative more social environment.

Special keynote speaker, and winner, Amirtha Raman of Amazon, talked about her successes in the space, to those in attendance. Raman has more than 13 years of hands-on experience in product development, product strategy, and building strategic relations. Currently, she leads products at the intersection of trucking, payments, and the IoT.

The WoM2M of IoT are selected because they each bring a unique lens to their respective companies that helps push connected technologies forward. The seventh annual awards program recognized women as trailblazers and innovators in the IoT space. In addition, the WoM2M of IoT in Marketing winners were celebrated for their achievements of spreading the message of the IoT.

“This is one of my favorite nights of the year,” says Smedley. “As a woman, it great to honor these women.  They deserve to take one night to be recognized for all that they have accomplished. It is an honor to get to know each and every one of them and to learn how to continue to propel the industry forward.”
