This first Meetup will be a follow up to the iBeacon Living Lab Launch held March 5th in Amsterdam where we presented the initiative and the first steps including the Beacon Mile from Central Station to the Marineterrein. Specifically, we want to create serious momentum and answer the question "Why become a partner in this network?", and talk about what it means to participate . As we prepare for the upcoming European Presidency 2016, the City of Amsterdam's CTO office is facilitating the emergence of a disruptive IoT community and an open Living Lab program to test the impact of public iBeacon deployment on the tech economy, start-up community and citizen's lives. This is an ambitious project which offers value as well as visibility to innovators eager to prototype, test and prove concepts which make a positive impact and engage citizens in open, public spaces. During this meetup we will set up an intelligent network of experimental entrepreneurs, researchers, app builders and users and civil servants working together to make this initiative a reality. We will create action groups which you can join and will also be taking nominations for the Steering Committee elections. If you are ready, willing and able find out HOW YOU CAN JOIN US by coming to this meetup- bring ideas and discuss the future of our city, it's spaces and people.
