Abu Dhabi, 28 February 2019:  The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is set to host the 25th annual Special Libraries Association - Arabian Gulf Chapter (SLA-AGC) Conference & Exhibition, under the theme ‘The Internet of Things: The Future of Connected Internet Societies’, from 5 - 7 March at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

The ‘Standards’ session will shed light on the general outlook of IoT devices and applications within a wide range of industries.
