StrategyEye Networking Event: The Future of Wearable Tech

19 December 2014

Will 2015 be the year that wearable tech finally breaks into the mainstream? Will Apple’s smartwatch blow open the market? Could connected shirts and smart glasses take off or will adoption continue to come in fits and bursts?

Join us at The Escalator, in East London, on Wednesday 28th January 2015 for the latest networking event from our friends at StrategyEye:The Future of Wearable Tech. StrategyEye will be presenting research data on investment trends and we will be hearing from Google UK’s program director for wearable tech, Grant Allen and other experts in this increasingly hyped area. Here is a recent article from StrategyEye analysing the future of wearable tech - Connected Wearable Device Shipments To Hit 168m in 2019.
