15 Mar 2017
Visitor numbers rose 3 per cent for the fourth Wearable Technology Show last week surpassing the 5,000 mark for the first time in the event’s history. 5,035 visitors attended the 2017 event, 109 exhibitors from over 20 countries were on the show floor and 234 speakers hosted over 100 sessions in the conference programme.

More than 50 new products were launched to over 100 journalists with coverage featuring on BBC News, Click, Sky’s Swipe, BBC Newsround, ITN Middle East, China Central and in Forbes and Design Week as well as many technology outlets.

Organisers Evolve Media have confirmed the event will return to ExCeL for a fifth year running 13-14 March 2018. In the meantime, WTS US – the smart technology show – will return in the US this autumn, and the firm have also confirmed a first outing for the WAVE Congress – targeted at the enterprise – in June.

“Anyone who said wearables and smart technology were a flash in the pan couldn’t be more wrong – to grow to over 5,000 visitors from a standing market and in a brand new market in just four years is testament to that and an achievement we’re all very proud of.” said John Weir, the event’s director.
