The longest-running smart fabric conference in the world, WEAR 2017, will be holding its next annual conference in San Francisco on June 12th. Presented by Smithers Apex, the conference will run for three days, and will feature four pre-conference workshops and over 45 presentations.
For the 2017 conference, WEAR will be presenting the latest updates on wearables for sports, collaboration within the industry, sustainability innovation, connected medical devices and the future of healthcare, and wearable apps.
Verizon, Adidas, Cotton Inc., Patagonia and several others have all recently announced presentations for the conference. In addition, the Fashion Institute of Technology, Indiegogo, Catapult, and Fisher Price have representatives within the speaker lineup.
Kimberlee Rohrer, Head of Production for Smithers Apex, commented on the programs, saying, “This year’s conference will allow attendees to split their time between two dedicated tracks, one on smart fabrics and the other focusing on wearable tech; giving them the most out of every discussion, presentation and panel happening at WEAR 2017.”
