All eyes on wearable tech companies exhibiting with KTN

Posted on: 15/03/2018

As part of the Wearable Technology Show KTN hosted a stand as well as presenting a session on bringing an emerging wearable technology to market.


Our exhibition stand at the Wearable Technology Show 2018 was designed to host a wide range of emerging technology companies who were handpicked from our network in order to showcase where the industry is headed: cutting edge examples of integrated technology that is lightweight, useable and not noticeable for the user, intelligent algorithms and data management, and b2b applications were all on show.

From healthcare, to agritech sensors, through to sportswear and energy harvesting devices, KTN’s Wearable Technology showcase proved hugely popular and our exhibitors made tangible, valuable connections; leads ranged from SMEs to major corporates.
