Evolve Media Group has reported a sixty per cent increase in exhibitors at its Wearable Technology Show next month.
Taking place at Excel London on 10-11 March, the show will feature 100 exhibitors including technology giants Microsoft, Samsung, Intel, Jawbone and Misfit, and start-ups Ambiotex, MyBrain, Nuvo and Made with Glove, funding supremo IndieGoGo, and students from the University of London.
The Wearable Technology Show launched in 2014, and will this year feature The Wearable Technology Start-Up Competition, a dedicated Hackfest and The Wearables 2015.
Lisa Doerr, CEO, Wearable Technology Show said: “This industry may have started out as ‘glasses and watches’ but the product launches at this year’s Wearable Technology Show prove without a doubt that wearable technology is about much more than accessing our emails on the go – it has valid, and valuable, applications across a wide range of industries and the products in development to aid healthcare are particularly impressive.”
Alongside the exhibition will be a nine-track conference programme featuring more than 200 expert speakers from companies including Google, LG and McLaren. The event will also be co-located with the Augmented Reality Show for the first time, giving visitors access to the event for AR, VR and smart glasses.
Visitors will also see the global launch of Teiimo’s illation jacket, a heated leather jacket with integrated Bluetooth system and cell phone charger, and a host of UK launches including the next generation of wearable watches and trackers such as Activinsights’ wristband, which lets healthcare professionals diagnose and manage conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
