The 33rd WT | Wearable Technologies Conference will take place on February 5-6 and will once again be THE meeting point for global professionals of the entire wearable ecosystem. This year for the first time the event will be part of ISPO tradeshow located in the brand new innovation hall C6 of Messe Munich. More than 60 high-level speakers coming from Bayer, Odlo, Casio, Gore, Microsoft and STMicroelectronics will give you the latest insights into their applications and digitalization strategies via IoT and WT solutions and drive your business development. The unique agenda is covering the latest trends and developments of the tremendously growing wearables market.

We are experiencing innovation at a very high pace. But those who do not make an effort to fully understand the true meaning of innovation will think that innovation is all about developing new products. Actually, innovation is “breaking out of the status quo and turning a novel and useful idea into a solution that adds merit from a consumer’s perspective.”

At our 33rd WT | Wearable Technologies Conference on February 5-6, we will highlight great thought leaders and innovators from all over the globe. While these innovators will be speaking at the conference, the companies themselves will showcase their breakthrough innovations. The companies and their leaders speaking at the conference are listed below. Do not miss the chance to meet and listen to them in person and join us for #WTEU19!
