Wearable technology – one of the fastest growing and most exciting sectors in technology – promises to be a game changer for the enterprise, with industry analysts projecting a $70 billion market by 2024.

The Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit – being held October 20-21, 2015 at The St. Regis Hotel in Houston, Texas – is the only event focused exclusively on the use of wearable technology for business & industry. Consisting of real-world case studies & best-practice user examples, the conference will look into how some of the most forward-thinking companies, from across the industry spectrum, are seeking to utilize wearables in order to innovate, increase efficiencies, cut costs, and improve the safety of employees in the field.

“There are many very compelling use cases for wearable computing devices in the business world, where such deployments could save millions of dollars by cutting time for specific tasks and generally improving workplace productivity, efficiency, and safety, among other potential benefits.” – Jeffrey Friedman, Principal, BrainXchange.

The event program explores industry-specific applications for wearable tech, as well as strategies for adoption.
