CES 2018 Las Vegas Wearable Tech Summit January 11th Sands Expo Level 2, Hall A-D #CES2018
NEW YORK, Dec. 28, 2017 Press Release from CEA — Technology changes as quickly as fashion trends these days. Put the two together and you’ve got a perplexing landscape. What technologies do people really want to wear on their bodies? What do they want to do with those technologies? And how do we overcome the barriers to making wearable tech a no-brainer? All of these questions and more will be addressed during the second annual Wearable Tech Summit at CES 2018 on Thursday, January 11th.
“With shrinking footprints, new flexible and woven materials, advances in battery life, new interfaces like voice and gesture, and a collaborative cloud of data, wearable technology is heading towards its next plateau. We’re predicting that wearables in the workplace will get a major boost this year, as will a host of IoT wearables designed to keep you safe and healthier. Debates will spark around privacy as more and more companies use wearables to track everything from exercise to access at the workplace,” said Robin Raskin, founder and president, Living in Digital Times.
This year’s can’t-miss sessions at the Wearable Tech Summit include:
A look at how wearables are moving away from “geeky” and toward “fashion-forward” with experts from ELLE magazine, Heisel, Fossil Group and Ashley Chloe.
The Top Five Wearable Trends of 2018 with Xenoma, Interaxon (Muse) and Google.
Wearables that keep you safer and healthier with insight from Nuheara, ShotDoctor, Euromonitor International, Tractive GmbH and TrackR.
A discussion about wearables for safety and security in the workplace moderated by Piers Fawkes, Founder & President, PSFK.
