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.

With the rising popularity of wearable devices, smart patches are becoming more and more common every day. These smart patches adhere to the skin like a self-adhesive bandage and continuously monitor health data. Smart pills on the other hand are also gaining momentum in the wearable tech race. Smart pills deliver drugs to the part of the body where it is needed, and when it is needed. From implantable devices to smart capsules, drug manufacturers are regularly coming up with new ideas of drug delivery.

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!
