I’m extremely excited to announce the 1st Wearable Wednesday event in Europe in Barcelona, during the Mobile World Congress. Since the launch of shift 2020, I have been working with the Wearable World team in San Francisco and my friend Marc Pous in Barcelona to make this happen.
The inaugural WWbcn event is scheduled on Wednesday, February 26 at 4YFN at the Fira de Montjuich. You’ll be able to meet the most innovative wearable tech entrepreneurs, demo wearable products, share ideas and discuss trends in both local and global markets.
Wearable Wednesday events are an open community forum focused on the blending of technology, art and humanity in the Wearable Technology and Internet of Things ecosystem. The goal is to provide a platform for industry innovators, entrepreneurs, builders and investors to connect with like-minded, motivated people with the knowledge, vision and partnerships that will move the Internet of Wearable Things ecosystem forward. Group Meetups will include both technical and market-oriented sessions. Wearable Wednesdays are held globally across the world’s top tech centers, including San Francisco, New York, Dallas and London, and we continue to launch new locations periodically. Meet the most innovative wearable tech entrepreneurs in your community, demo products, share ideas and discuss trends in both local and global markets.
I will empower the Wearable Wednesday activities as a European Ambassador helping the team with expansion, program content, partnerships and growing the community.
The topic of the first event is “State of the Wearable Economy” and will include presentations and panellists from Raimo Van De Klein, CEO of Glasseffect, Laurent Le Pen, CEO at Omate, Christian Lindholm, CEO at Koru Labs, Raluca Oltean, Academic Manager, Corporate Affairs Europe at Intel, and some other speakers yet to be confirmed. Raimo will also launch his new startup EAZE. EAZE makes one of the most cumbersome processes we encounter on a daily basis frictionless by combining two of the most disruptive technologies around into one product. The result will amaze you (YES it will!).
The event starts at 5pm and closes at 8pm.
