We see everyone from young entrepreneurs exchanging information with decision makers of MNCs to engineers discussing conductive coupling techniques,” said Barbara Fowler, Conference Director, Smithers Apex. “Besides networking, we have an agenda that is filled to the brim with the topics people are buzzing about. Flexible OLEDs, computational reality, revolutionizing smart glasses and a few things you’ll have to be there to believe. Smart fabrics and wearable technology are becoming mainstream products because of the people who attend our conference. We only recruit the most newsworthy individuals who are changing the game to speak at this event and 2014 certainly has an all-star cast.”
