Wearable Tech Expo and FAST Move to Javits Convention Center


Growing participant numbers cause need for bigger venue

Norwalk, CT—April 14, 2014—TMC announced today that due to attendee and vendor growth,  Wearable Tech Conference & Expo III, the leading wearable tech industry event held on July 23-24, 2014, will be relocating to the Javits Convention Center in New York City, NY. Fitness and Sports Technology (FAST) Conference II, held on July 22, 2014, will also be moving to the Javits Convention Center. Both events provide attendees with case studies, demos and unique sessions that discover the current and future state of the billion dollar wearable tech market.

FAST Expo delivers a focused, in-depth look into wearable, mobile and data technologies in the fitness and sports industries. From sensor technology to exploring the data captured by wearable devices and examining real-time player biometric and performance data, the event features discussions on critical aspects of the industry.

The Wearable Tech Expo will explore a wide range of topics, including the benefits of augmented reality and some of the products associated with it; the role of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) in the wearables market; smart innovations for clothing and home; key insight for startups; and much more.

“Wearable Tech Expo and FAST have both proven to be the go-to events for the wearables market,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “Changing venues due to growing participation from attendees and exhibitors is an issue we welcome and we look forward to taking both of these shows to the Javits Convention Center and providing a great experience for our attendees.”
